[PATCH v2 0/2] target/ppc: Implement Dynamic Execution Control Registers

From: Nicholas Miehlbradt
Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] target/ppc: Implement Dynamic Execution Control Registers
Date: Fri, 9 Dec 2022 06:13:06 +0000

Implements the Dynamic Execution Control Register (DEXCR) and the
Hypervisor Dynamic Execution Control Register (HDEXCR) in TCG as
defined in Power ISA 3.1B. Only aspects 5 (Non-privileged hash instruction
enable) and 6 (Privileged hash instruction enable) have architectural
effects. Other aspects can be manipulated but have no effect on execution.

Adds checks to these registers in the hashst and hashchk instructions so
that they are executed as nops when not enabled.

There is currently an RFC for the kernel interface for the DEXCR on the 
Linux PPC mailing list:
