[PATCH] KVM: VMX: mark unusable segment as nonpresent

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


Some userspaces do not preserve unusable property. Since usable
segment has to be present according to VMX spec we can use present
property to amend userspace bug by making unusable segment always
nonpresent. vmx_segment_access_rights() already marks nonpresent segment
as unusable.
