[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen/pv: Call get_cpu_address_sizes to set x86_virt/phys_bits

Commit d94a155c59c9 ("x86/cpu: Prevent cpuinfo_x86::x86_phys_bits
adjustment corruption") has moved the query and calculation of the
x86_virt_bits and x86_phys_bits fields of the cpuinfo_x86 struct
from the get_cpu_cap function to a new function named

One of the call sites related to Xen PV VMs was unfortunately missed
in the aforementioned commit. This prevents successful boot-up of
kernel versions 4.17 and up in Xen PV VMs if CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL
is enabled, due to the following code path:


phys_addr_valid uses boot_cpu_data.x86_phys_bits to validate physical
addresses. boot_cpu_data.x86_phys_bits is no longer populated before
the call to xen_reserve_special_pages due to the aforementioned commit
though, so the validation performed by phys_addr_valid fails, which
causes __phys_addr to trigger a BUG, preventing boot-up.

Fixes: d94a155c59c9 ("x86/cpu: Prevent cpuinfo_x86::x86_phys_bits adjustment 


Changes since v1:
- Move the call to get_cpu_address_sizes below the call to
- Amend the commit message to describe why PV VMs do not boot up
  successfully when CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL is enabled.
