Re: [PATCH v5 18/19] KVM:nVMX: Refine error code injection to nested VM

From: Sean Christopherson

This is not "refinement", this is full on supporting a new nVMX feature. Please
phrase the shortlog accordingly, e.g. something like this (it's not very good,
but it's a start).

KVM: nVMX: Add support for exposing "No PM H/W error code checks" to L1

Regarding shortlog, please update all of them in this series to put a space after
the colon, i.e. "KVM: VMX:" and "KVM: x86:", not "KVM:x86:".

The "CC" part of my suggestion is critical to this being sane. As is, this reads
"nested CPU has no hardware error code", which is not even remotely close to the

static inline bool nested_cpu_has_no_hw_errcode_cc(struct kvm_vcpu *vcpu)
return to_vmx(vcpu)->nested.msrs.basic & VMX_BASIC_NO_HW_ERROR_CODE_CC;
