[PATCH 3.18 07/50] KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Restore critical SPRs to host values on guest exit

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Aug 04 2017 - 19:30:19 EST

3.18-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Paul Mackerras <paulus@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 4c3bb4ccd074e1a0552078c0bf94c662367a1658 upstream.

This restores several special-purpose registers (SPRs) to sane values
on guest exit that were missed before.

TAR and VRSAVE are readable and writable by userspace, and we need to
save and restore them to prevent the guest from potentially affecting
userspace execution (not that TAR or VRSAVE are used by any known
program that run uses the KVM_RUN ioctl). We save/restore these
in kvmppc_vcpu_run_hv() rather than on every guest entry/exit.

FSCR affects userspace execution in that it can prohibit access to
certain facilities by userspace. We restore it to the normal value
for the task on exit from the KVM_RUN ioctl.

IAMR is normally 0, and is restored to 0 on guest exit. However,
with a radix host on POWER9, it is set to a value that prevents the
kernel from executing user-accessible memory. On POWER9, we save
IAMR on guest entry and restore it on guest exit to the saved value
rather than 0. On POWER8 we continue to set it to 0 on guest exit.

PSPB is normally 0. We restore it to 0 on guest exit to prevent
userspace taking advantage of the guest having set it non-zero
(which would allow userspace to set its SMT priority to high).

UAMOR is normally 0. We restore it to 0 on guest exit to prevent
the AMR from being used as a covert channel between userspace
processes, since the AMR is not context-switched at present.

[paulus@xxxxxxxxxx - removed IAMR bits that are only needed on POWER9;
adjusted FSCR save/restore for lack of fscr field in thread_struct.]
