parentarm64: cache: Identify VPIPT I-caches (diff)
arm64: KVM: Add support for VPIPT I-caches
A VPIPT I-cache has two main properties: 1. Lines allocated into the cache are tagged by VMID and a lookup can only hit lines that were allocated with the current VMID. 2. I-cache invalidation from EL1/0 only invalidates lines that match the current VMID of the CPU doing the invalidation. This can cause issues with non-VHE configurations, where the host runs at EL1 and wants to invalidate I-cache entries for a guest running with a different VMID. VHE is not affected, because the host runs at EL2 and I-cache invalidation applies as expected. This patch solves the problem by invalidating the I-cache when unmapping a page at stage 2 on a system with a VPIPT I-cache but not running with VHE enabled. Hopefully this is an obscure enough configuration that the overhead isn't anything to worry about, although it does mean that the by-range I-cache invalidation currently performed when mapping at stage 2 can be elided on such systems, because the I-cache will be clean for the guest VMID following a rollover event.

+ * takes a CoW fault on an executable page, copies the page into
+ * a page that was previously mapped in the guest and then needs
+ * to invalidate the guest view of the I-cache for that page
+ * from EL1. To solve this, we invalidate the entire I-cache when
+ * unmapping a page from a guest if we have a VPIPT I-cache but
+ * the host is running at EL1. As above, we could do better if
+ * we had the VA.
+ *
+ * The moral of this story is: if you have a VPIPT I-cache, then
+ * you should be running with VHE enabled.
