[Xen-devel] [PATCH v5 00/18] xen/arm: PSCI 1.1 and SMCCC-1.1 support and XSA-254 variant 2 update

Hi all,

Arm has recently published a SMC Calling Convention (SMCCC)
specification update [1] that provides an optimised calling convention
and optional, discoverable support for mitigating CVE-2017-5715 (XSA-254
variant 2). ARM Trusted Firmware (ATF) has already gained such an

This series addresses a few things:

    - It provides a Xen implementation of PSCI v1.0, which is a
      prerequisite for being able to discover SMCCC v1.1.
    - It allows Xen to advertise SMCCC v1.1
    - It implements guest support for the
      ARM_WORKAROUND_1 function that is used
      to mitigate CVE-2017-5715 (if such mitigation is available on the
    - It adds Xen support for branch predictor hardening via
      ARM_WORKAROUND_1 if the firmware supports it.

This method is intended to fully replace the initial PSCI_GET_VERSION
approach. Although PSCI_GET_VERSION still works, it has an obvious
overhead and is called on some of the hottest paths. We expect
ARCH_WORKAROUND_1 to be much faster.
