[PATCH 00/28] KVM: x86/mmu: Overhaul TDP MMU zapping and flushing

From: Sean Christopherson
Date: Fri Nov 19 2021 - 23:51:59 EST

Overhaul TDP MMU's handling of zapping and TLB flushing to reduce the
number of TLB flushes, and to clean up the zapping code. The final patch
realizes the biggest change, which is to use RCU to defer any TLB flush
due to zapping a SP to the caller. The largest cleanup is to separate the
flows for zapping roots (zap _everything_), zapping leaf SPTEs (zap guest
mappings for whatever reason), and zapping a specific SP (NX recovery).
They're currently smushed into a single zap_gfn_range(), which was a good
idea at the time, but became a mess when trying to handle the different
rules, e.g. TLB flushes aren't needed when zapping a root because KVM can
safely zap a root if and only if it's unreachable.

For booting an 8 vCPU, remote_tlb_flush (requests) goes from roughly
180 (600) to 130 (215).

Please don't apply patches 02 and 03, they've been posted elsehwere and by
other people. I included them here because some of the patches have
pseudo-dependencies on their changes. Patch 01 is also posted separately.
I had a brain fart and sent it out realizing that doing so would lead to

KVM: x86/mmu: Skip tlb flush if it has been done in zap_gfn_range()
