4.104 KVM_X86_GET_MCE_CAP_SUPPORTED
Capability: KVM_CAP_MCE
Architectures: x86
Type: system ioctl
Parameters: u64 mce_cap (out)
Returns: 0 on success, -1 on error
Returns supported MCE capabilities. The u64 mce_cap parameter
has the same format as the MSR_IA32_MCG_CAP register. Supported
capabilities will have the corresponding bits set.
4.105 KVM_X86_SETUP_MCE
Capability: KVM_CAP_MCE
Architectures: x86
Type: vcpu ioctl
Parameters: u64 mcg_cap (in)
Returns: 0 on success,
-EFAULT if u64 mcg_cap cannot be read,
-EINVAL if the requested number of banks is invalid,
-EINVAL if requested MCE capability is not supported.
Initializes MCE support for use. The u64 mcg_cap parameter
has the same format as the MSR_IA32_MCG_CAP register and
specifies which capabilities should be enabled. The maximum
supported number of error-reporting banks can be retrieved when
checking for KVM_CAP_MCE. The supported capabilities can be
retrieved with KVM_X86_GET_MCE_CAP_SUPPORTED.
4.106 KVM_X86_SET_MCE
Capability: KVM_CAP_MCE
Architectures: x86
Type: vcpu ioctl
Parameters: struct kvm_x86_mce (in)
Returns: 0 on success,
-EFAULT if struct kvm_x86_mce cannot be read,
-EINVAL if the bank number is invalid,
-EINVAL if VAL bit is not set in status field.
Inject a machine check error (MCE) into the guest. The input
parameter is:
struct kvm_x86_mce {
__u64 status;
__u64 addr;
__u64 misc;
__u64 mcg_status;
__u8 bank;
__u8 pad1[7];
__u64 pad2[3];
};
If the MCE being reported is an uncorrected error, KVM will
inject it as an MCE exception into the guest. If the guest
MCG_STATUS register reports that an MCE is in progress, KVM
causes an KVM_EXIT_SHUTDOWN vmexit.
Otherwise, if the MCE is a corrected error, KVM will just
store it in the corresponding bank (provided this bank is
not holding a previously reported uncorrected error).
