Re: [Xen-devel] Was: Request complete reversion of XSA-60 patches

Following a long discussion with Tim, it appears that despite the AMD
codepath being changed, there appear to be no relevant side effects as a
result, which reduces my main concern with the series.

However, in the process we identified more areas which need a cache flush.

vmx_ctxt_switch_from() needs a wbinvd() for the case where we service a
vmexit but get descheduled before returning.  There are also the
previously indicated areas which also need more cache invalidation.

There is also a wider problem with cached mappings from dom0, which are
identified but not introduced by this series.  Fixing this is still an
oustanding problem, with no sensible solution being apparent.
