[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/3] x86: Add a hvmop for setting the #VE suppress bit

As the code stands right now, after DomU has enabled #VE using
HVMOP_altp2m_vcpu_enable_notify, all its pages have the #VE suppress bit
cleared, generating #VEs for any EPT violation.  There is currently no
way to change the value of the #VE suppress bit for a page from a
domain; it can only be done in Xen internally using ept_set_entry().

Following the discussion from
https://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2017-03/msg01312.html this
patch introduces a new hvmop to set this bit and thus have control over
which pages generate #VE and which VM-Exit.

I'm not sure whether it's best to define p2m_set_suppress_ve() in
mem_access.c since this file contains common functions for x86 (vmx &
svm) and the function is Intel-specific.
