KVM-PR doesn't work anymore on my Nemo board [1]. I figured out that the Git kernels and the kernel 5.7 are affected.

Error message: Fienix kernel: kvmppc_exit_pr_progint: emulation at 700 failed (00000000)

I can boot virtual QEMU PowerPC machines with KVM-PR with the kernel 5.6 without any problems on my Nemo board.

I tested it with QEMU 2.5.0 and QEMU 5.0.0 today.

Could you please check KVM-PR on your PowerPC machine?

I figured out that the PowerPC updates 5.7-1 [1] are responsible for the KVM-PR issue. Please test KVM-PR on your PowerPC machines and check the PowerPC updates 5.7-1 [1].

I tested the latest Git kernel with Mac-on-Linux/KVM-PR today. Unfortunately I can't use KVM-PR with MoL anymore because of this issue (see screenshots [1]). Please check the PowerPC updates 5.7-1.

Hi All,

I bisected today because of the KVM-PR issue.

    powerpc/64s/exception: Move KVM test to common code

    This allows more code to be moved out of unrelocated regions. The
    system call KVMTEST is changed to be open-coded and remain in the
    tramp area to avoid having to move it to entry_64.S. The custom nature
    of the system call entry code means the hcall case can be made more
    streamlined than regular interrupt handlers.

    mpe: Incorporate fix from Nick:

    Moving KVM test to the common entry code missed the case of HMI and
    MCE, which do not do __GEN_COMMON_ENTRY (because they don't want to
    switch to virt mode).

    This means a MCE or HMI exception that is taken while KVM is running a
    guest context will not be switched out of that context, and KVM won't
    be notified. Found by running sigfuz in guest with patched host on
    POWER9 DD2.3, which causes some TM related HMI interrupts (which are
    expected and supposed to be handled by KVM).

    This fix adds a __GEN_REALMODE_COMMON_ENTRY for those handlers to add
    the KVM test. This makes them look a little more like other handlers
    that all use __GEN_COMMON_ENTRY.

The following commit is the problem: powerpc/64s/exception: Move KVM test to common code [1]

These changes were included in the PowerPC updates 5.7-1. [2]

Another test:

git checkout d38c07afc356ddebaa3ed8ecb3f553340e05c969 (PowerPC updates 5.7-1 [2] ) -> KVM-PR doesn't work.

After that: git revert d38c07afc356ddebaa3ed8ecb3f553340e05c969 -m 1 -> KVM-PR works.

Could you please check the first bad commit? [1]
