parentkvm: x86: Add AMD's EX_CFG to the list of ignored MSRs (diff)
KVM: x86: nSVM: fix switch to guest mmu
Recent optimizations in MMU code broke nested SVM with NPT in L1 completely: when we do nested_svm_{,un}init_mmu_context() we want to switch from TDP MMU to shadow MMU, both init_kvm_tdp_mmu() and kvm_init_shadow_mmu() check if re-configuration is needed by looking at cache source data. The data, however, doesn't change - it's only the type of the MMU which changes. We end up not re-initializing guest MMU as shadow and everything goes off the rails. The issue could have been fixed by putting MMU type into extended MMU role but this is not really needed. We can just split root and guest MMUs the exact same way we did for nVMX, their types never change in the lifetime of a vCPU. There is still room for improvement: currently, we reset all MMU roots when switching from L1 to L2 and back and this is not needed.
