Subject[PATCH v2 0/8] KVM: x86: vcpu->arch.pio* cleanups
These patches complete the job started by commit 3b27de271839 ("KVM:
x86: split the two parts of emulator_pio_in", 2021-10-22). The commit
message eloquently said that emulator_pio_in_out "currently hardcodes
vcpu->arch.pio_data as the source/destination buffer, which sucks but
will be fixed after the more severe SEV-ES buffer overflow". Some time
has passed and it's high time to do it.

After this series, in-kernel PIO does not use vcpu->arch.pio* anymore;
it is only used by complete_emulator_pio_in.


- split out "KVM: x86: complete fast IN directly with complete_emulator_pio_in()"
- remove WARN if emulated PIO performs successful in-kernel iterations before
falling back to userspace, it is (unfortunately) valid if SRCU changes mid-loop.
- new patch 3 to handle unregistered devices mid-loop, dropping writes and reading
as zero
- WARN if non-NULL data is passed to emulator_pio_in_out() before the code is
ready to handle in-kernel PIO without vcpu->arch.pio*
- use "size" in SEV case instead of vcpu->arch.pio_size

Paolo Bonzini (8):
KVM: x86: complete fast IN directly with complete_emulator_pio_in()
KVM: x86: inline kernel_pio into its sole caller
KVM: x86: drop PIO from unregistered devices
KVM: x86: move all vcpu->arch.pio* setup in emulator_pio_in_out()
KVM: x86: wean in-kernel PIO from vcpu->arch.pio*
KVM: x86: wean fast IN from emulator_pio_in
KVM: x86: de-underscorify __emulator_pio_in
KVM: SEV-ES: reuse advance_sev_es_emulated_ins for OUT too
