Hi Paolo and Radim

Any comments on this patch, I could not find it in 4.13-2 branch.

Please let me know if you want to fix something, or want me to
refresh and resend the patch.

Sorry, I tried it during the merge window, but it didn't pass tests on
VMX and I got distracted by other bugs before looking into the cause.

Can you reproduce the fail?

No worries, thanks.

I can try to reproduce it, are you running kvm-unittest or something different?

I noticed that a linux guest hung in early boot, but at least (io)apic
kvm-unit-tests failed as well, IIRC.

IIRC, VMX does not set the gpa_available flag hence I am wondering what did I 
in the patch to trigger the failure. I will debug it and let you know.

It does now, in ept_violation and ept_misconfig,

I am able to reproduce the issue on VMX, Sorry it took a bit longer to verify

I was not aware that VMX is also making use of gpa_available flag hence I missed
updating the vmx.c to set the gpa_val. After applying the below small patch I am
able to boot the guest on Intel Xeon E5-2665.

Additionally, there was one issue in current patch pointed by Paolo [1]. If 
was using vcpu->arch.gpa_val check as pointed by Paolo then on VMX we will 
fallback to guest page table walk (even when gpa_available is set). I guess 
since I
have testing my code on SVM platform hence never caught the error. I will soon 
updated patch.
