Subject: [PATCH 0/6] KVM/x86: Add workaround to support ExtINT with AVIC

This series is one of the prerequisites for supporting AMD AVIC with
in-kernel irqchip (kernel_irqchip=on).

Since AVIC does not support ExtINT interrupt, which is required during
the booting phase of Windows and FreeBSD VMs (e.g. PIT -> PIC -> ExtInt).
This results in VM hang in the boot loader with kernel_irqchip=on mode.

This series provides workaround by temporary deactivate AVIC and fallback
to use legacy interrupt injection (w/ vINTR and interrupt window).
Then re-activate AVIC once the intrrupts are handled.


Suravee Suthikulpanit (6):
  KVM: x86: Add callback functions for handling APIC ID, DFR and LDR
  svm: Add AMD AVIC handlers for APIC ID, DFR and LDR update
  svm: Add support for APIC_ACCESS_PAGE_PRIVATE_MEMSLOT setup/destroy
  kvm: lapic: Add apicv activate/deactivate helper function
  KVM: x86: Add interface for run-time activate/de-activate APIC
  svm: Temporary deactivate AVIC during ExtINT handling
