SubjectRE: [PATCH Part2 v6 47/49] *fix for stale per-cpu pointer due to cond_resched during ghcb mapping
Date
[AMD Official Use Only - General]

Hello Peter,

>Can you add a commit description here? Is this a fix for existing SEV-ES support or should this be incorporated into a patch in this series which adds this issue?

This actually fixes issues caused due to preemption happening in svm_prepare_switch_to_guest() when kvm_vcpu_map() is called to map in the GHCB before
entering the guest.

This is a temporary fix and what we need to do is to prevent getting preempted after vcpu_enter_guest() has disabled preemption, have some ideas about
using gfn_to_pfn_cache() infrastructure to re-use the already mapped GHCB at guest exit, so that we can avoid calling kvm_vcpu_map() to re-map the
GHCB.

Thanks,
Ashish
