[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/2] i386/kvm: TSC page clocksource for Hyper-V-o

From: Vitaly Kuznetsov
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/2] i386/kvm: TSC page clocksource for Hyper-V-on-KVM fixes
Date: Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:34:58 +0100

Changes since v2:
- add hv-reenlightenment CPU property [Roman Kagan, Paolo Bonzini]
- add a comment to feature_word_info [Roman Kagan]

Previously, Ladi was working on enabling TSC page clocksource for nested
Hyper-V-on-KVM workloads. He found out that if Hyper-V frequency MSRs are
exposed to L1 as well as INVTSC flag Hyper-V enables TSC page clocksource
to its guests. Qemu doesn't pass INVTSC by default as it is a migration

I found out there's a different way to make Hyper-V like us: expose
Reenlightenment MSRs to it. KVM doesn't fully support the feature as
we're still unable to migrate nested environments but rudimentary support
we have there (kvm/queue only currently) is enough.

Enable Hyper-V reenlightenment MSRs and expose frequency MSRs even without
INVTSC to make things work.

Vitaly Kuznetsov (2):
  i386/kvm: add support for Hyper-V reenlightenment MSRs
  i386/kvm: lower requirements for Hyper-V frequency MSRs exposure
