[Qemu-devel] CC_DST problem

I'm still trying to implement SVM correctly and hit a serious problem.
If I set CC_OP to EFLAGS / DYNAMIC after each instruction (so most
conditional operations are based on EFLAGS) everything works as expected.
If using CC_OP==CC_OP_EFLAGS only CC_SRC should be used and CC_DST is
supposed to be completely ignored.

So I set CC_DST to 0 (this happens when leaving and rejoining the
virtual machine, so this is the real problem) and if I do that, I get
funny segmentation faults in x86_64 guest userspace programs running in
the virtual machine (this is exactly what I see in kvm with my current
patchset as well), while 32 bit userspace programs simply hang.
So I guess this is the real problem.

Is there any logical reason CC_DST could be used with CC_OP==CC_OP_EFLAGS?

Attached to this email you will find a small patch that triggers this

Thanks for any reply that could help on this,
