Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 00 of 20] NestedVMX support


Thanks for these patches.  They look pretty good; I have a few comments
on the individual patches that I'll post separately.

Overall the only worry I have is the number of TODOs left at the end of
the series.  Some of them are obvioulsy ony important when you come to
do the nested EPT work.  I'd appreciate a comment on whether you think
any of these is important:

+static int nvmx_intr_intercept(struct vcpu *v, struct hvm_intack
+    u32 exit_ctrl;
+    /*
+     * TODO:
+     *   - if L1 intr-window exiting == 0
+     *   - vNMI
+     */

+static int decode_vmx_inst(struct cpu_user_regs *regs,
+                           struct vmx_inst_decoded *decode,
+                           unsigned long *poperandS, int vmxon_check)
+        /* TODO: segment type check */

This one, at least, I think does need to be fixed!

+static void load_shadow_control(struct vcpu *v)
+    /* TODO: Make sure the shadow control doesn't set the bits 
+     * L0 VMM doesn't handle.
+     */

+int nvmx_handle_vmlaunch(struct cpu_user_regs *regs)
+    /* TODO: check for initial launch/resume */
+    return nvmx_handle_vmresume(regs);

+void nvmx_idtv_handling(void)
+    /* TODO: NMI */

+static void load_shadow_guest_state(struct vcpu *v)
+    /* XXX: should refer to GUEST_HOST_MASK of both L0 and L1 */
