Subject: [PATCH v2 0/9] Add AMD SEV page encryption bitmap support.

From: Ashish Kalra <>

The series add support for AMD SEV page encryption bitmap.

SEV guest VMs have the concept of private and shared memory. Private memory
is encrypted with the guest-specific key, while shared memory may be encrypted
with hypervisor key. The patch series introduces a new hypercall.
The guest OS can use this hypercall to notify the page encryption status.

The patch adds new ioctls KVM_{SET,GET}_PAGE_ENC_BITMAP. The ioctl can be used
by qemu to get the page encryption bitmap. Qemu can consult this bitmap
during guest live migration / page migration and/or guest debugging to know
whether the page is encrypted.

The page encryption bitmap support is required for SEV guest live migration,
guest page migration and guest debugging.

The patch-set also adds support for bypassing unencrypted guest memory
regions for DBG_DECRYPT API calls, guest memory region encryption status
in sev_dbg_decrypt() is now referenced using the page encryption bitmap.

A branch containing these patches is available here:

Changes since v1:
 - Fix in sev_dbg_crypt() to release RCU read lock if hva_to_gfn() fails
   when bypassing DBG_DECRYPT API calls for unencrypted guest memory.
 - Comment fix for Patch 7/9.
