To address your comment, please help confirm whether you are
fine or happy with the streamlined logic of intel_guest_get_msrs():

static struct perf_guest_switch_msr *intel_guest_get_msrs(int *nr)

     arr[0].msr = MSR_CORE_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL;
     arr[0].host = x86_pmu.intel_ctrl & ~cpuc->intel_ctrl_guest_mask;
     arr[0].guest = x86_pmu.intel_ctrl & ~cpuc->intel_ctrl_host_mask;

     /*
      * Disable PEBS in the guest if PEBS is used by the host; enabling PEBS
      * in both will lead to unexpected PMIs in the host and/or missed PMIs
      * in the guest.
      */
     if (cpuc->pebs_enabled & ~cpuc->intel_ctrl_host_mask) {
         if (x86_pmu.flags & PMU_FL_PEBS_ALL)
             arr[0].guest &= ~cpuc->pebs_enabled;
         else
             arr[0].guest &= ~(cpuc->pebs_enabled & PEBS_COUNTER_MASK);
     }
     *nr = 1;

     if (x86_pmu.pebs) {
         arr[1].msr = MSR_IA32_PEBS_ENABLE;
         arr[2].msr = MSR_IA32_DS_AREA;
         if (x86_pmu.intel_cap.pebs_baseline)
             arr[3].msr = MSR_PEBS_DATA_CFG;

entry). */

         arr[2].guest = arr[2].host = (unsigned long)ds;

          *
          * KVM will update arr[2|3].guest with the trapped guest values
          * iff guest PEBS is allowed to be enabled.
          */
         if (!arr[1].host) {
             arr[1].guest = cpuc->pebs_enabled & ~cpuc->intel_ctrl_host_mask;
             arr[0].guest |= arr[1].guest;
         } else if (x86_pmu.pebs_no_isolation)
             arr[1].guest = 0;

         *nr = x86_pmu.intel_cap.pebs_baseline ? 4 : 3;
     }

     return arr;
