[PATCH v5 0/3] xen/x86: implement NMI continuation

Posted by Juergen Gross 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Move sending of a virq event for oprofile to the local vcpu from NMI
to normal interrupt context.

This has been tested with a small test patch using the continuation
framework of patch 1 for all NMIs and doing a print to console in
the continuation handler.

Version 1 of this small series was sent to the security list before.

Changes in V3:
- switched to self-IPI instead of softirq
- added patch 3

Changes in V4:
- use less generic approach

Changes in V5:
- addressed comments

Juergen Gross (3):
  xen/x86: add nmi continuation framework
  xen/oprofile: use NMI continuation for sending virq to guest
  xen/x86: issue pci_serr error message via NMI continuation
