KVM does not implement the debug architecture to the letter of the
specification. One such issue is the fact that KVM treats the OS Lock as
RAZ/WI, rather than emulating its behavior on hardware. This series adds
emulation support for the OS Lock to KVM. Emulation is warranted as the
OS Lock affects debug exceptions taken from all ELs, and is not limited
to only the context of the guest.

The 1st patch is a correctness fix for the OSLSR register, ensuring
the trap handler actually is written to suggest WO behavior. Note that
the changed code should never be reached on a correct implementation, as
hardware should generate the undef, not KVM.

The 2nd patch adds the necessary context to track guest values of the
OS Lock bit and exposes the value to userspace for the sake of

The 3rd patch makes the OSLK bit writable in OSLAR_EL1 (from the guest)
and OSLSR_EL1 (from userspace), but does nothing with its value.

The 4th patch actually implements the OS Lock behavior, disabling all
debug exceptions (except breakpoint instructions) from the perspective
of the guest. This is done by disabling MDE and SS in MDSCR_EL1.

The 5th patch asserts that OSLSR_EL1 is exposed by KVM to userspace
through the KVM_GET_REG_LIST ioctl. Lastly, the 6th patch asserts that
no debug exceptions are routed to the guest when the OSLK bit is set.

This series applies cleanly to 5.16-rc2. Tested on an Ampere Altra
machine with the included selftests patches.
