In this presentation, we will share our insights on current state and issues of KVM nVMX support in various mechanisms.
We will deep dive into a nVMX mechanism which had many issues: nVMX event-injection. We will cover how it works, examine an interesting issue we have encountered, analyze it's root-cause and explain the fix we have upstream. Then, we will cover recent work done on other nVMX mechanisms in high-level and highlight pending nVMX issues which are still not resolved and suggest possible directions for the future of nVMX.
