Hi Konstantin, Thanks for the suggestion! We're trying to solve the issue with "hv_features/hv_recommendations" of some Hyper-V specific CPUIDs -- the other hypervisors are unlikely to touch these CPUIDs; even if they do touch the CPUIDs, I think they should respect the meanings of the CPUIDs and shouldn't incorrectly report capabilities they doesn't really have. A drafted patch is here: https://github.com/howard0su/freebsd/commit/d1d031e0d8991ab1f94de00325705d266829c647 We'll clean up & post it -- Dexuan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
