    KVM/VMX: Allow direct access to MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL · d28b387f
    KarimAllah Ahmed authored
    [ Based on a patch from Ashok Raj <ashok.raj@intel.com> ]
    Add direct access to MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL for guests. This is needed for
    guests that will only mitigate Spectre V2 through IBRS+IBPB and will not
    be using a retpoline+IBPB based approach.
    To avoid the overhead of saving and restoring the MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL for
    guests that do not actually use the MSR, only start saving and restoring
    when a non-zero is written to it.
    No attempt is made to handle STIBP here, intentionally. Filtering STIBP
    may be added in a future patch, which may require trapping all writes
    if we don't want to pass it through directly to the guest.
