In commit 3af18d9c5fe9 ("KVM: nVMX: Prepare for using hardware MSR bitmap"),
we are setting MSR_BITMAP in prepare_vmcs02 if we should use hardware. This
is not enough since the field will be modified by following vmx_set_efer.

Fix this by setting vmx_msr_bitmap_nested in vmx_set_msr_bitmap if vcpu is
in guest mode.

Do you think this should be (is_guest_mode(vcpu) &
                                  (exec_control &  CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS)) ?

We don't need to do that, because if we don't use the hardware, we will disable
hardware msr bitmap:

        if (cpu_has_vmx_msr_bitmap() &&
            exec_control & CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS) {
                nested_vmx_merge_msr_bitmap(vcpu, vmcs12);
                /* MSR_BITMAP will be set by following vmx_set_efer. */
        } else
                exec_control &= ~CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS;

Then, the hardware will ignore MSR_BITMAP.
Setting MSR_BITMAP without enabling it may be unnecessary, but it is no
harm, and we can reduce the code complexity of vmx_set_msr_bitmap.


Thanks,
Wincy
