/*G:020 This is where we begin: we have a magic signature which the launcher
* looks for. The plan is that the Linux boot protocol will be extended with a
* "platform type" field which will guide us here from the normal entry point,
* but for the moment this suffices. The normal boot code uses %esi for the
* boot header, so we do too. We convert it to a virtual address by adding
* PAGE_OFFSET, and hand it to lguest_init() as its argument (ie. %eax).
* The .section line puts this code in .init.text so it will be discarded after
* boot. */

/*M:004 When the Host reflects a trap or injects an interrupt into the Guest,
* it sets the eflags interrupt bit on the stack based on
* lguest_data.irq_enabled, so the Guest iret logic does the right thing when
* restoring it. However, when the Host sets the Guest up for direct traps,
* such as system calls, the processor is the one to push eflags onto the
* stack, and the interrupt bit will be 1 (in reality, interrupts are always
* enabled in the Guest).
* This turns out to be harmless: the only trap which should happen under Linux
* with interrupts disabled is Page Fault (due to our lazy mapping of vmalloc
* regions), which has to be reflected through the Host anyway. If another
* trap *does* go off when interrupts are disabled, the Guest will panic, and
* we'll never get to this iret! :*/
/*G:045 There is one final paravirt_op that the Guest implements, and glancing
* at it you can see why I left it to last. It's *cool*! It's in *assembler*!
* The "iret" instruction is used to return from an interrupt or trap. The
* stack looks like this:
* old address
* old code segment & privilege level
* old processor flags ("eflags")
* The "iret" instruction pops those values off the stack and restores them all
* at once. The only problem is that eflags includes the Interrupt Flag which
* the Guest can't change: the CPU will simply ignore it when we do an "iret".
* So we have to copy eflags from the stack to lguest_data.irq_enabled before
* we do the "iret".
* There are two problems with this: firstly, we need to use a register to do
* the copy and secondly, the whole thing needs to be atomic. The first
* problem is easy to solve: push %eax on the stack so we can use it, and then
* restore it at the end just before the real "iret".
* The second is harder: copying eflags to lguest_data.irq_enabled will turn
* interrupts on before we're finished, so we could be interrupted before we
* return to userspace or wherever. Our solution to this is to surround the
* code with lguest_noirq_start: and lguest_noirq_end: labels. We tell the
* Host that it is *never* to interrupt us there, even if interrupts seem to be
* enabled. */
