parentx86/kvmclock: set pvti_cpu0_va after enabling kvmclock (diff)
KVM/Eventfd: Avoid crash when assign and deassign specific eventfd in parallel.
Syzbot reports crashes in kvm_irqfd_assign(), caused by use-after-free when kvm_irqfd_assign() and kvm_irqfd_deassign() run in parallel for one specific eventfd. When the assign path hasn't finished but irqfd has been added to kvm->irqfds.items list, another thead may deassign the eventfd and free struct kvm_kernel_irqfd(). The assign path then uses the struct kvm_kernel_irqfd that has been freed by deassign path. To avoid such issue, keep irqfd under kvm->irq_srcu protection after the irqfd has been added to kvm->irqfds.items list, and call synchronize_srcu() in irq_shutdown() to make sure that irqfd has been fully initialized in the assign path.
