[PATCH 2/2] KVM: PPC: Book3S: PR: No isync in slbie path

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


While messing around with the SLBs we're running in real mode. The
entry to guest space goes through rfid, which is context synchronizing,
so there's no need to manually synchronize anything through isync.

With this patch and a simple priviledged SPR access loop guest, I get
a speed bump from 2035607 to 2181301 exits per second.
