This patch set provides enough kernel support to allow hosting Xen HVM 
guests in KVM. It allows hypercalls to be trapped to userspace for 
handling, uses the existing KVM functions for writing system clock and 
pvclock information to Xen shared pages, and adds Xen runstate info and 
event channel upcall vector delivery.

It's based on the first section of a patch set that Joao posted as 
RFC last year^W^W in 2019:


I've updated and reworked the original a bit, including (in my v1):
 • Support for 32-bit guests
 • 64-bit second support in wallclock
 • Time counters for runnable/blocked states in runstate support
 • Self-tests
 • Fixed Viridian coexistence
 • No new KVM_CAP_XEN_xxx, just more bits returned by KVM_CAP_XEN_HVM

 • Remember the RCU read-critical sections on using the shared info pages
 • Fix 32-bit build of compat structures (which we use there too)
 • Use RUNSTATE_blocked as initial state not RUNSTATE_runnable
 • Include documentation, add cosmetic KVM_XEN_HVM_CONFIG_HYPERCALL_MSR

 • Stop mapping the shared pages; use kvm_guest_write_cached() instead.
 • Use kvm_setup_pvclock_page() for Xen pvclock writes too.
 • Fix CPU numbering confusion and update documentation accordingly.
 • Support HVMIRQ_callback_vector delivery based on evtchn_upcall_pending.

 • Rebase on top of the KVM changes merged into 5.11-rc1.
 • Drop the kvm_{un,}map_gfn() cleanup as it isn't used since v2 anyway.
 • Trivial cosmetic cleanup (superfluous parens, remove declaration of a
   function removed in v3, etc.)

With the addition in v3 of the callback vector support, we can now 
successfully boot Linux guests. Other callback types can be handled 
entirely from userspace, but the vector injection needs kernel support 
because it doesn't quite work to inject it as ExtINT.

We will work on a little bit more event channel offload in future patches,
as discussed, but those are purely optimisations. There's a bunch of work
for us to do in userspace before those get to the top of our list, and
this patch set should be functionally complete as it is.

We're working on pushing out rust-vmm support to make use of this, and
Joao's qemu patches from last year should still also work with minor
tweaks where I've "improved" the KVM←→userspace ABI.
