Subject: [PATCH] KVM: x86: fix Hot-plugged cpu hang when Configured tsc-frequency is not equal to host

From: Zhuang Yanying <ann.zhuangyanying@...wei.com>

If the TSC frequency of the VM is not equal to the host, hot-plugging vCPU
will cause the VM to be hang. The time of hang depends on the current TSC
value of the VM.

During hot-plugging vCPUs, kvm_arch_vcpu_create() uses max_tsc_khz,
that is the host TSC frequency, to initialize TSC frequency of the vcpu.
Then, configure the target frequency by using KVM_SET_TSC_KHZ.
Set the tsc valus of the vCPU to 0 by using MSR_IA32_TSC.

If the vCPU TSC frequency is the same as the host, kvm_synchronize_tsc()
adjusts the TSC value of the hot-plugged vCPU based on the elapsed time.
However, when the vCPU TSC frequency is different from the host,
the TSC value of the hot-plugged vCPU is 0 and is displayed to the guest
OS, trigger tsc adjustment. As a result, the guest OS marks TSC unstable
and hangs for a while.

The TSC frequency of the same CPU model may differ slightly.
After live migration, hot-plugging vCPU to the Destination VM, trigger the
VM hangs for a long while. After CPU supports TSC scaling, the TSC value
of the hot-plugged vCPU can be adjusted based on the elapsed time
even if the VM TSC frequency is different from the host TSC frequency.

kvm->arch.last_tsc_khz stores the TSC frequency value of the VM.
last_tsc_khz can be used to initialize the TSC frequency of the
hot-plugging vCPU.
