      KVM: arm64: Fix caching of host MDCR_EL2 value · da5a3ce6
      Mark Rutland authored
      At boot time, KVM stashes the host MDCR_EL2 value, but only does this
      when the kernel is not running in hyp mode (i.e. is non-VHE). In these
      cases, the stashed value of MDCR_EL2.HPMN happens to be zero, which can
      lead to CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE behaviour.
      Since we use this value to derive the MDCR_EL2 value when switching
      to/from a guest, after a guest have been run, the performance counters
      do not behave as expected. This has been observed to result in accesses
      via PMXEVTYPER_EL0 and PMXEVCNTR_EL0 not affecting the relevant
      counters, resulting in events not being counted. In these cases, only
      the fixed-purpose cycle counter appears to work as expected.
      Fix this by always stashing the host MDCR_EL2 value, regardless of VHE.

      block: use nanosecond resolution for iostat · b57e99b4
      Omar Sandoval authored
      Klaus Kusche reported that the I/O busy time in /proc/diskstats was not
      updating properly on 4.18. This is because we started using ktime to
      track elapsed time, and we convert nanoseconds to jiffies when we update
      the partition counter. However, this gets rounded down, so any I/Os that
      take less than a jiffy are not accounted for. Previously in this case,
      the value of jiffies would sometimes increment while we were doing I/O,
      so at least some I/Os were accounted for.
      Let's convert the stats to use nanoseconds internally. We still report
      milliseconds as before, now more accurately than ever. The value is
      still truncated to 32 bits for backwards compatibility.
      Fixes: 522a7775

        "It's mostly small bugfixes and cleanups, mostly around x86 nested
         virtualization.  One important change, not related to nested
         virtualization, is that the ability for the guest kernel to trap
         CPUID instructions (in Linux that's the ARCH_SET_CPUID arch_prctl) is
         now masked by default.  This is because the feature is detected
         through an MSR; a very bad idea that Intel seems to like more and
         more.  Some applications choke if the other fields of that MSR are
         not initialized as on real hardware, hence we have to disable the
         whole MSR by default, as was the case before Linux 4.12."
