I assume you want to add the extra SSE requirement to TCG code, not to generic x86 code, then I have no objections. Your conclusion seems to be right for pcommit and clflushopt, if I checked the opcodes and encoding properly. In the case of pcommit (/7, modrm == 0xf8), we check for SSE; in the case of clflushopt (/7 with a memory operand, modrm != 0xf8), we check for CLFLUSH. But in the case of clwb (/6 with a memory operand, modrm != 0xc0), we are not just requiring SSE2: we are rejecting the instruction unless modrm == 0xc0. That means TCG is rejecting the clwb instruction, so I believe we shouldn't add CLWB to TCG_7_0_EBX_FEATURES yet. -- Eduardo -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe kvm" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
