Pull KVM updates from Paolo Bonzini: "First batch of KVM changes for 4.4. s390: A bunch of fixes and optimizations for interrupt and time handling. PPC: Mostly bug fixes. ARM: No big features, but many small fixes and prerequisites including: - a number of fixes for the arch-timer - introducing proper level-triggered semantics for the arch-timers - a series of patches to synchronously halt a guest (prerequisite for IRQ forwarding) - some tracepoint improvements - a tweak for the EL2 panic handlers - some more VGIC cleanups getting rid of redundant state x86: Quite a few changes: - support for VT-d posted interrupts (i.e. PCI devices can inject interrupts directly into vCPUs). This introduces a new component (in virt/lib/) that connects VFIO and KVM together. The same infrastructure will be used for ARM interrupt forwarding as well. - more Hyper-V features, though the main one Hyper-V synthetic interrupt controller will have to wait for 4.5. These will let KVM expose Hyper-V devices. - nested virtualization now supports VPID (same as PCID but for vCPUs) which makes it quite a bit faster - for future hardware that supports NVDIMM, there is support for clflushopt, clwb, pcommit - support for "split irqchip", i.e. LAPIC in kernel + IOAPIC/PIC/PIT in userspace, which reduces the attack surface of the hypervisor - obligatory smattering of SMM fixes - on the guest side, stable scheduler clock support was rewritten to not require help from the hypervisor" * tag 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm: (123 commits) KVM: VMX: Fix commit which broke PML KVM: x86: obey KVM_X86_QUIRK_CD_NW_CLEARED in kvm_set_cr0() KVM: x86: allow RSM from 64-bit mode KVM: VMX: fix SMEP and SMAP without EPT KVM: x86: move kvm_set_irq_inatomic to legacy device assignment KVM: device assignment: remove pointless #ifdefs KVM: x86: merge kvm_arch_set_irq with kvm_set_msi_inatomic KVM: x86: zero apic_arb_prio on reset drivers/hv: share Hyper-V SynIC constants with userspace KVM: x86: handle SMBASE as physical address in RSM KVM: x86: add read_phys to x86_emulate_ops KVM: x86: removing unused variable KVM: don't pointlessly leave KVM_COMPAT=y in non-KVM configs KVM: arm/arm64: Merge vgic_set_lr() and vgic_sync_lr_elrsr() KVM: arm/arm64: Clean up vgic_retire_lr() and surroundings KVM: arm/arm64: Optimize away redundant LR tracking KVM: s390: use simple switch statement as multiplexer KVM: s390: drop useless newline in debugging data KVM: s390: SCA must not cross page boundaries KVM: arm: Do not indent the arguments of DECLARE_BITMAP ...
