kvm: x86: Fix initial kvm_has_msr_star

KVM_GET_MSR_INDEX_LIST returns -E2BIG when the provided space is too
small for all MSRs. But this is precisely the error we trigger with the
initial request in order to obtain that size. Do not fail in that case.

This caused a subtle corruption of the guest state as MSR_STAR was not...

kvm: x86: Add support for VCPU event states

This patch extends the qemu-kvm state sync logic with support for
KVM_GET/SET_VCPU_EVENTS, giving access to yet missing exception,
interrupt and NMI states.

kvm: x86: Refactor use of interrupt_bitmap

Drop interrupt_bitmap from the cpustate and solely rely on the integer
interupt_injected. This prepares us for the new injected-interrupt
interface, which will deprecate the bitmap, while preserving

preserve the hypervisor bit while KVM trims the CPUID bits

The KVM kernel will disable all bits in CPUID which are not present in
the host. As this is mostly true for the hypervisor bit (1.ecx),
preserve its value before the trim and restore it afterwards....

fix KVMs GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID feature usage

If we want to trim the user provided CPUID bits for KVM to be not greater
than that of the host, we should not remove the bits after we sent
them to the kernel.
This fixes the masking of features that are not present on the host by...

kvm: work around supported cpuid ioctl() brokenness

KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID has been known to fail to return -E2BIG
when it runs out of entries. Detect this by always trying again
with a bigger table if the ioctl() fills the table.

Guest debugging support for KVM (Jan Kiszka)

This is a backport of the guest debugging support for the KVM
accelerator that is now part of the KVM tree. It implements the reworked
KVM kernel API for guest debugging (KVM_CAP_SET_GUEST_DEBUG) which is
not yet part of any mainline kernel but will probably be 2.6.30 stuff....
