[Xen-devel] nested VMX issues/questions


first I noticed that nvmx_vcpu_initialise() doesn't set the two MSR
bitmap related flags, but nvmx_handle_vmwrite() apparently expects
them to be set. Is that correct (and if so, why)?

Furthermore I question whether the handling of partial writes (for
32-bit L1 guests) in nvmx_handle_vmwrite() is really correct: After
only one half of the register got written, the _map_{io,msr}_bitmap()
functions are not impossible to fail, causing the guest VMWRITE to get
failed with VMFAIL_VALID (which, if coded like Xen, would cause such
a guest to crash).
