[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/3] tcg-arm: LPAE: fix and extend xn control

From: Andrew Jones
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/3] tcg-arm: LPAE: fix and extend xn control
Date: Wed, 11 Mar 2015 19:06:04 +0100

This series fixes and extends the determination of whether or
not an address is executable for LPAE translations. The main
patch is 3/3, and describes the details in its commit message.
Patch 1/3 prepares for patch 2/3, which is prep for 3/3, and also
fixes a potential problem with checking access permissions on
v6 processors when they use the simple AP format.

Changes since v2:
* Collect NSTable bits into ns
* Explicitly check {prot,user}_rw against PAGE_READ. !{prot,user}_rw
  means no read or write, but, since we can't have write without read,
  it also means !({prot,user}_rw & PAGE_READ). Making this explicit
  can reduce confusion when trying to determine with prot flag we
  actually care about. [Peter Maydell]

Changes since v1:
* There are now 3 patches instead of 5. This is due to approaching
  the prep patches in a different way. Most notably, simple AP
  format is now handled with its own function. [Peter Maydell]
* A check of SCTLR_AFE is guarded with ARM_FEATURE_V6K [Peter Maydell]
* All other cleanups suggested by Peter Maydell.

Tested by booting Linux on mach-virt with cortex-a15 and cortex-a57
(just up to 'Unable to mount root fs'), and also with a kvm-unit-tests
test. The curious can check out the unit test here [1].

Thanks in advance for reviews!



Andrew Jones (3):
  target-arm: convert check_ap to ap_to_rw_prot
  target-arm: fix get_phys_addr_v6/SCTLR_AFE access check
  target-arm: get_phys_addr_lpae: more xn control
