[Xen-devel] Regression in OSSTest Windows install test case

Hi all

The Windows install test case has been failing reliably in OSSTest for
the last 6 runs.

The issue manifest as Windows hit blue screen with garbled text that
cannot be recognised when booting. Xen doesn't complain about any

I bisected that and found this commit is to be blamed.

    x86/hvm: unify stdvga mmio intercept with standard mmio intercept
    It's clear from the following check in hvmemul_rep_movs:
        if ( sp2mt == p2m_mmio_direct || dp2mt == p2m_mmio_direct ||
             (sp2mt == p2m_mmio_dm && dp2mt == p2m_mmio_dm) )
            return X86EMUL_UNHANDLEABLE;
    that mmio <-> mmio copy is not handled. This means the code in the
    stdvga mmio intercept that explicitly handles mmio <-> mmio copy when
    hvm_copy_to/from_guest_phys() fails is never going to be executed.
    This patch therefore adds a check in hvmemul_do_io_addr() to make sure
    mmio <-> mmio is disallowed and then registers standard mmio intercept ops
    in stdvga_init().
    With this patch all mmio and portio handled within Xen now goes through

Tell me if you need more information or want me to test a patch. I do
have test environment at hand.
