Unfortunately I can't use KVM-PR with MoL anymore because of this
issue (see screenshots ). Please check the PowerPC updates 5.7-1.

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  are responsible for
the KVM-PR issue. Please test KVM-PR on your PowerPC machines and
check the PowerPC updates 5.7-1 .
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
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
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 
These changes were included in the PowerPC updates 5.7-1. 
git checkout d38c07afc356ddebaa3ed8ecb3f553340e05c969 (PowerPC updates
5.7-1  ) -> KVM-PR doesn't work.
After that: git revert d38c07afc356ddebaa3ed8ecb3f553340e05c969 -m 1
-> KVM-PR works.
Could you please check the first bad commit? 
I tried to revert the __GEN_REALMODE_COMMON_ENTRY fix for the latest Git
kernel and for the stable kernel 5.7.2 but without any success. There
was lot of restructuring work during the kernel 5.7 development time in
the PowerPC area so it isn't possible reactivate the old code. That
means we have lost the whole KVM-PR support. I also reported this issue
to Alexander Graf two days ago. He wrote: "Howdy :). It looks pretty
broken. Have you ever made a bisect to see where the problem comes from?"
Please check the KVM-PR code.
