SubjectRE: [PATCH v8 2/5] x86/tdx: Add TDX Guest event notify interrupt support
Date
Thank you, Jun.

Yes. I confirmed that we will include below change to GHCI.next spec.

================
3.5 TDG.VP.VMCALL<SetupEventNotifyInterrupt>

From: "The host VMM should use SEAMCALL [TDWRVPS] leaf to inject an interrupt at the requested-interrupt vector into the TD via the posted-interrupt descriptor. "

To: "The host VMM should use SEAMCALL [TDWRVPS] leaf to inject an interrupt at the requested-interrupt vector into the TD VCPU that executed TDG.VP.VMCALL <SetupEventNotifyInterrupt> via the posted-interrupt descriptor. "

3.13 TDG.VP.VMCALL<Service>

Table 3-39: TDG.VP.VMCALL< Service >-Input Operands

From: R14:
"Event notification interrupt vector - (valid values 32~255) selected by TD
0: blocking action. VMM need get response then return.
1~31: Reserved. Should not be used.
32~255: Non-block action. VMM can return immediately and signal the interrupt vector when the response is ready. "

To: R14:
"Event notification interrupt vector - (valid values 32~255) selected by TD
0: blocking action. VMM need get response then return.
1~31: Reserved. Should not be used.
32~255: Non-block action. VMM can return immediately and signal the interrupt vector when the response is ready. VMM should inject interrupt vector into the TD VCPU that executed TDG.VP.VMCALL<Service>."

================

Thank you
