[Xen-devel] [PATCH] libxc/restore: Fix REC_TYPE_X86_PV_VCPU_XSAVE data auditing (take 2)

Posted by Andrew Cooper 34 weeks ago
It turns out that a bug (since forever) in Xen causes XSAVE records to have
non-architectural behaviour on xsave-capable hardware, when a PV guest has not
touched the state.

In such a case, the data record returned from Xen is 2*uint64_t, both claiming
the (illegitimate) state of %xcr0 and %xcr0_accum being 0.

Adjust the bound in handle_x86_pv_vcpu_blob() to cope with this.

Fixes: 2a62c22715b "libxc/restore: Fix data auditing in handle_x86_pv_vcpu_blob()"

I'll see about fixing Xen at some other point.  A second bug is that we have
two copies of part of the vCPU's FPU state.
