[PATCH] KVM: x86: nSVM: fix switch to guest mmu

From: Vitaly Kuznetsov
Date: Wed Dec 19 2018 - 11:25:20 EST

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.
