x86/kvm/mmu: reset MMU context when 32-bit guest switches PAE
Commit 47c42e6b4192 ("KVM: x86: fix handling of role.cr4_pae and rename it to 'gpte_size'") introduced a regression: 32-bit PAE guests stopped working. The issue appears to be: when guest switches (enables) PAE we need to re-initialize MMU context (set context->root_level, do reset_rsvds_bits_mask(), ...) but init_kvm_tdp_mmu() doesn't do that because we threw away is_pae(vcpu) flag from mmu role. Restore it to kvm_mmu_extended_role (as we now don't need it in base role) to fix the issue. Fixes: 47c42e6b4192 ("KVM: x86: fix handling of role.cr4_pae and rename it to 'gpte_size'") Signed-off-by: Vitaly Kuznetsov <> Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <>
