Merge tag 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm into next
Pull KVM updates from Paolo Bonzini: "At over 200 commits, covering almost all supported architectures, this was a pretty active cycle for KVM. Changes include: - a lot of s390 changes: optimizations, support for migration, GDB support and more - ARM changes are pretty small: support for the PSCI 0.2 hypercall interface on both the guest and the host (the latter acked by Catalin) - initial POWER8 and little-endian host support - support for running u-boot on embedded POWER targets - pretty large changes to MIPS too, completing the userspace interface and improving the handling of virtualized timer hardware - for x86, a larger set of changes is scheduled for 3.17. Still, we have a few emulator bugfixes and support for running nested fully-virtualized Xen guests (para-virtualized Xen guests have always worked). And some optimizations too. The only missing architecture here is ia64. It's not a coincidence that support for KVM on ia64 is scheduled for removal in 3.17" * tag 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm: (203 commits) KVM: add missing cleanup_srcu_struct KVM: PPC: Book3S PR: Rework SLB switching code KVM: PPC: Book3S PR: Use SLB entry 0 KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Fix machine check delivery to guest KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Work around POWER8 performance monitor bugs KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Make sure we don't miss dirty pages KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Fix dirty map for hugepages KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Put huge-page HPTEs in rmap chain for base address KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Fix check for running inside guest in global_invalidates() KVM: PPC: Book3S: Move KVM_REG_PPC_WORT to an unused register number KVM: PPC: Book3S: Add ONE_REG register names that were missed KVM: PPC: Add CAP to indicate hcall fixes KVM: PPC: MPIC: Reset IRQ source private members KVM: PPC: Graciously fail broken LE hypercalls PPC: ePAPR: Fix hypercall on LE guest KVM: PPC: BOOK3S: Remove open coded make_dsisr in alignment handler KVM: PPC: BOOK3S: Always use the saved DAR value PPC: KVM: Make NX bit available with magic page KVM: PPC: Disable NX for old magic page using guests KVM: PPC: BOOK3S: HV: Add mixed page-size support for guest ...

+Generic vm interface
+====================================
+
+The virtual machine "device" also accepts the ioctls KVM_SET_DEVICE_ATTR,
+KVM_GET_DEVICE_ATTR, and KVM_HAS_DEVICE_ATTR. The interface uses the same
+struct kvm_device_attr as other devices, but targets VM-wide settings
+and controls.
+
+The groups and attributes per virtual machine, if any, are architecture
+specific.
+
+1. GROUP: KVM_S390_VM_MEM_CTRL
+Architectures: s390
+
+1.1. ATTRIBUTE: KVM_S390_VM_MEM_CTRL
+Parameters: none
+Returns: -EBUSY if already a vcpus is defined, otherwise 0
+
+Enables CMMA for the virtual machine
+
+1.2. ATTRIBUTE: KVM_S390_VM_CLR_CMMA
+Parameteres: none
+Returns: 0
+
+Clear the CMMA status for all guest pages, so any pages the guest marked
+as unused are again used any may not be reclaimed by the host.

+================
