[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] i386 translation: fix typo in xsetbv implementation

From: Dave Hansen
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] i386 translation: fix typo in xsetbv implementation
Date: Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:57:40 -0700

QEMU 2.6 added support for the XSAVE family of instructions, which
includes the XSETBV instruction which allows setting the 'XCR0'

But, when booting Linux kernels with XSAVE support enabled, I was
getting very early crashes where the instruction pointer was set
to 0x3.  I tracked it down to a jump instruction generated by this:

        gen_jmp_im(s->pc - pc_start);

where s->pc is pointing to the instruction after XSETBV and pc_start
is pointing _at_ XSETBV.  Subtract the two and you get 0x3.  Whoops.

The fix is to replace this typo with the pattern found everywhere
else in the file when folks want to end the translation buffer.

Richard Henderson confirmed that this is a bug and that this is the
correct fix.
