Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH][HAP][2/2] fix CR4 initialization when hap is on

This seems an odd change. The earlier setting of CR4 in construct_vmcb() already masks out paging-related bits. So why would the remaining bits’ behaviour differ between hap and shadow paging modes? It would seem to me that either CR4 should be zero at start-of-day in all cases (seems quite likely to me as that’s what happens in a native system), or the existing code should be okay in both cases.

This patch initializes VMCB CR4 and shadow CR4 with 0 when VMCB is being constructed under nested paging mode. It complies with recent reset_to_realmode change in hvmloader.
