    KVM: arm/arm64: Avoid VGICv3 save/restore on VHE with no IRQs · 2d0e63e0
    Christoffer Dall authored
    We can finally get completely rid of any calls to the VGICv3
    save/restore functions when the AP lists are empty on VHE systems.  This
    requires carefully factoring out trap configuration from saving and
    restoring state, and carefully choosing what to do on the VHE and
    non-VHE path.
    One of the challenges is that we cannot save/restore the VMCR lazily
    because we can only write the VMCR when ICC_SRE_EL1.SRE is cleared when
    emulating a GICv2-on-GICv3, since otherwise all Group-0 interrupts end
    up being delivered as FIQ.
    To solve this problem, and still provide fast performance in the fast
    path of exiting a VM when no interrupts are pending (which also
    optimized the latency for actually delivering virtual interrupts coming
    from physical interrupts), we orchestrate a dance of only doing the
    activate/deactivate traps in vgic load/put for VHE systems (which can
    have ICC_SRE_EL1.SRE cleared when running in the host), and doing the
    configuration on every round-trip on non-VHE systems.
