Subject: [PATCH] KVM: PPC: Defer vtime accounting 'til after IRQ handling
Date: Wed,  6 Oct 2021 09:37:45 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Commit 61bd0f66ff92 has moved guest_enter() out of the interrupt
protected area to be able to have updated tick counters, but
commit 112665286d08 moved back to this area to avoid wrong
context warning (or worse).

None of them are correct, to fix the problem port to POWER
the x86 fix 160457140187 ("KVM: x86: Defer vtime accounting 'til
after IRQ handling"):

"Defer the call to account guest time until after servicing any IRQ(s)
 that happened in the guest or immediately after VM-Exit.  Tick-based
 accounting of vCPU time relies on PF_VCPU being set when the tick IRQ
 handler runs, and IRQs are blocked throughout the main sequence of
 vcpu_enter_guest(), including the call into vendor code to actually
 enter and exit the guest."

Fixes: 61bd0f66ff92 ("KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Fix guest time accounting with VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN")
Fixes: 112665286d08 ("KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Context tracking exit guest context before enabling irqs")
