[PATCH v2] hw/intc/arm_gicv3_cpuif: Tolerate spurious EOIR writes

Posted by Jean-Philippe Brucker 6 months ago
Commit 382c7160d1cd ("hw/intc/arm_gicv3_cpuif: Fix EOIR write access
check logic") added an assert_not_reached() if the guest writes the EOIR
register while no interrupt is active.

It turns out some software does this: EDK2, in
GicV3ExitBootServicesEvent(), unconditionally write EOIR for all
interrupts that it manages. This now causes QEMU to abort when running
UEFI on a VM with GICv3. Although it is UNPREDICTABLE behavior and EDK2
does need fixing, the punishment seems a little harsh, especially since
icc_eoir_write() already tolerates writes of nonexistent interrupt
numbers. Display a guest error and tolerate spurious EOIR writes.

Applied to target-arm.next, thanks.

Xen seems good at triggering this as well...
