[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen/pv: Fix a boot up hang revealed by int3 self test

Posted by Zhenzhong Duan 1 week ago
Commit 7457c0da024b ("x86/alternatives: Add int3_emulate_call()
selftest") is used to ensure there is a gap setup in exception stack
which could be used for inserting call return address.

This gap is missed in XEN PV int3 exception entry path, then below panic
triggered:

As xenint3 and int3 entry code are same except xenint3 doesn't generate
a gap, we can fix it by using int3 and drop useless xenint3.

For 64bit PV guests, Xen's ABI enters the kernel with using SYSRET, with
%rcx/%r11 on the stack.

To convert back to "normal" looking exceptions, the xen thunks do `pop
%rcx; pop %r11; jmp do_*`...

What is confusing is why there are 3 extra magic versions here.  At a
guess, I'd say something to do with IST settings (given the vectors),
but I don't see why #DB/#BP would need to be different in the first
place.  (NMI sure, but that is more to do with the crazy hoops needing
to be jumped through to keep native functioning safely.)

xenint3 will be removed in this patch safely as it don't use IST now.

But debug and nmi need paranoid_entry which will read MSR_GS_BASE to 
determine

if swapgs is needed. I guess PV guesting running in ring3 will #GP with 
swapgs?

Not only that (Xen could trap and emulate swapgs if that was needed) - 64-bit
PV kernel mode always gets entered with kernel GS base already set. Hence
finding out whether to switch the GS base is specifically not something that
any exception entry point would need to do (and it should actively try to
avoid it, for performance reasons).

Indeed.  The SWAPGS PVOP is implemented as a nop for x86 PV, to simply
the entry assembly (rather than doubling up all entry vectors).

I'm confused on the purpose of trap_array[], could you elucidate me?

The sole user seems to be get_trap_addr() and that talks about ISTs, but
#BP isn't an IST anymore, so why does it have ist_okay=true?

Used to replace trap handler addresses by Xen specific ones and sanity check

if there's an unexpected IST-using fault handler.
