[PATCH v2 0/8] KVM: x86: Clean up MSR PAT handling

From: Sean Christopherson
Date: Thu May 11 2023 - 19:33:58 EST

Clean up KVM's handling of MSR PAT. The PAT is currently lumped in with
MTRRs, and while the PAT does affect memtypes, it's not an MTRR and is
exempted from KVM's kludgy attempts to play nice with UC memory for guests
with passthrough devices that have non-coherent DMA (KVM does NOT set
"ignore guest PAT" in this case, and so the guest PAT is virtualized by
hardware, not emulated by KVM).

- Move common bits of write path to kvm_set_msr_common(). [Kai]
- Reword changelogs to call out that KVM enables hardware virtualization
of guest PAT when the guest has non-coherent DMA. [Kai]
- Clean up more open coded references to MTRR MSRs. [Yan]
- Squash away the standalone WARN patch. [Kai]

KVM: SVM: Use kvm_pat_valid() directly instead of kvm_mtrr_valid()

KVM: x86: Add helper to query if variable MTRR MSR is base (versus

KVM: x86: Use MTRR macros to define possible MTRR MSR ranges
KVM: x86: Move PAT MSR handling out of mtrr.c
KVM: x86: Make kvm_mtrr_valid() static now that there are no external
