Commit Message

Sean Christopherson Feb. 2, 2021, 4:55 p.m. UTC
Set the emulator context to PROT64 if SYSENTER transitions from 32-bit
userspace (compat mode) to a 64-bit kernel, otherwise the RIP update at
the end of x86_emulate_insn() will incorrectly truncate the new RIP.

Note, this bug is mostly limited to running an Intel virtual CPU model on
an AMD physical CPU, as other combinations of virtual and physical CPUs
do not trigger full emulation.  On Intel CPUs, SYSENTER in compatibility
mode is legal, and unconditionally transitions to 64-bit mode.  On AMD
CPUs, SYSENTER is illegal in compatibility mode and #UDs.  If the vCPU is
AMD, KVM injects a #UD on SYSENTER in compat mode.  If the pCPU is Intel,
SYSENTER will execute natively and not trigger #UD->VM-Exit (ignoring
guest TLB shenanigans).
