[Xen-devel] [PATCH 00/10] x86: Default vs Max policies

This series builds on several years worth of building blocks to finally create
a real distinction between default and max policies.

See the final patch for a concrete example.

Everything but the final patch is ready to go in now.  The final patch depends
on the still-in-review migration series, to provide suitable backwards
compatilbity for VMs coming from older versions of Xen.

Andrew Cooper (10):
  x86/sysctl: Don't return cpu policy data for compiled-out support (2)
  tools/libxc: Simplify xc_get_static_cpu_featuremask()
  x86/gen-cpuid: Rework internal logic to ease future changes
  x86/gen-cpuid: Create max and default variations of INIT_*_FEATURES
  x86/msr: Compile out unused logic/objects
  x86/msr: Introduce and use default MSR policies
  x86/cpuid: Compile out unused logic/objects
  x86/cpuid: Introduce and use default CPUID policies
  x86/gen-cpuid: Distinguish default vs max in feature annotations
  x86/hvm: Do not enable MPX by default
