Bug Description

BUG:

Starting FreeBSD Layer 2 bhyve Guest within Layer 1 FreeBSD VM Host on Layer 0 Ubuntu 20.04 KVM / QEMU Host result in Layer 1 Guest / Host Pausing with "Emulation Failure"

TESTING:

My test scenario is nested virtualisation:
Layer 0 - Ubuntu 20.04 Host
Layer 1 - FreeBSD 12.1 with OVMF + bhyve hypervisor Guest/Host
Layer 2 - FreeBSD 12.1 guest

Layer 0 Host is: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS KVM / QEMU / libvirt

<<START QEMU VERSION>>
$ virsh -c qemu:///system version --daemon
Compiled against library: libvirt 6.0.0
Using library: libvirt 6.0.0

<<START Intel VMX Support & Nesting Enabled>>
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -c vmx
64
$ cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/nested

<<END Intel VMS>>

Layer 1 Guest / Host is: FreeBSD Q35 v4.2 with OVMF:

Pass Host VMX support to Layer 1 Guest via <cpu mode='host-model>

<<LIBVIRT CONFIG SNIPPET>>

Checked that Layer 1 - FreeBSD Quest / Host has VMX feature available:

On Layer 1 FreeBSD Guest / Host start up the Layer 2 guest..

Result is that Layer 1 - FreeBSD Host guest "paused".

To Layer 1 machines freezes I cannot get any further diagnostics from this machine, so I run tail on libvirt log from Layer 0 - Ubuntu Host

I am reporting this bug here as result is very similar to that seen with QEMU seabios failure reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/+bug/1866870

However in this case my VM Layer 1 VM is using OVMF.

NOTE 1: I have also tested with Q35 v3.1 and 2.12 and get the same result.
NOTE 2: Due to bug in FreeBSD networking code, I had to compile custom kernel with "netmap driver disabled". This is known bug in FreeBSD that I have reported separately.
NOTE 3: I will cross posted this bug report on FreeBSD bugzilla as well: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=246168
NOTE 4: Have done extensive testing of Ubuntu 20.04 Nested virtualisation with just Ubuntu hosts and OVMF and the nested virtualisation runs correctly, so problem is specific to using FreeBSD / bhyve guest / host.

Hi Ubuntu / KVM Maintainers,

I have now done additional diagnostics on this bug and it appears to be triggered in nested virtualization case when apic virtualisation is available in Layer 0 HW and then passed forward to Layer 1 VM via Libvirt: <cpu mode='host-model' check='partial'> .

Testing found that in case where Layer 1 FreeBSD host had this feature, see "VID,PostIntr" in "VT-x: PAT,HLT,MTF,PAUSE,EPT,UG,VPID,VID,PostIntr" from CPU Feature below:

In my case with Intel Broadwell chipset this is available, in case of desktop "core i5-8250U" chip- this reports as:

VT-x: PAT,HLT,MTF,PAUSE,EPT,UG,VPID

For this case HW case, nested:
Layer 0 - Ubuntu 20.04, Layer 1 - FreeBSD 12.1 with bhyve, Layer 2 - FreeBSD 12.1
Works.

Workaround is to disable APIC virtual interrupt delivery:

1. Add entry into Layer 1 - FreeBSD Guest / Host: /boot/loader.conf:
hw.vmm.vmx.use_apic_vid=0

2. Reboot

3. Check via sysctl that virtual_interupt_delivery is disabled:
# sysctl hw.vmm.vmx.cap.virtual_interrupt_delivery
hw.vmm.vmx.cap.virtual_interrupt_delivery: 0 <- should be zero

Questions is:

While FreeBSD triggers this bug, is this a KVM issue or a FreeBSD bhyve one ?

In doing some searching on Web I see that there is already work being done with KVM 5.6 around APIC virtualisation and its handling. So not sure if this a potentially know problem: https://events19.linuxfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Improving-KVM-x86-Nested-Virtualization-Liran-Alon-Oracle.pdf

APIC Virtualisation support was introduced back in FreeBSD 11.0 way back in Sept 2016:

https://www.freebsd.org/releases/11.0R/relnotes.html#hardware-virtualization

Thanks to Peter Graham on FreeBSD virtualization bug tracker for helping to find source of problem.

Should this BUG go to KVM / QEMU upstream ?

Cheers,

John Hartley.

Hi John,
could you give it a try with the more recent virtualization stack in [1].
Since this might as well be in the kernel and not qemu/libvirt you might also consider checking other kernel versions - not sure with your self-built driver, but what kernels have you tried and which newer ones could you try? If you can overcome the other issue in another way you might try [2] which is great to check various versions.

That works "in place" on your 20.04 system and if better would indicate that one of the components has a fix that we only need to identify.

P.S. the PPA does not yet contain qmeu 6.0 which released a few days ago, it will be june until I get to that I guess :-/

Hi Christian,

just letting you know I have got email notifications and will re-run tests.
It will likely take me a couple days to complete this. I will post findings once done.
I will try against 20.04 and 21.04 to start and post on various component versions and results.

Cheers,

John.

Thanks for the test, that ensures it still is in 5.2
Unfortunately since a few days that isn't the very most recent version [1] as 6.0 release two weeks ago. I don't have a 6.0 version ready as Ubuntu package yet that I could ask you to try.

Usually for an upstream bug report (which IMHO is the right next step) you'd want to have confirmed that the last release is affected as well. So the question IMHO should now be - how do we get you a qemu 6.0 to try.
And if confirmed there the next step would be getting in touch with upstream at https://gitlab.com/qemu-project/qemu/-/issues

How comfortable (or not) would you feel building your own qemu for a test?
It should be something like:
$ git clone git://git.qemu.org/qemu.git
$ sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
# edit sources.list to have "# deb-src" lines no more commented out
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt build-dep qemu
$ cd qemu
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
# you should need almost nothing for your test, so the following (or similar) should give you a quick build
$ ../configure --disable-werror --disable-user --disable-linux-user --disable-docs --disable-guest-agent --disable-sdl --disable-gtk --disable-vnc --disable-xen --disable-brlapi --disable-fdt --disable-bluez --disable-hax --disable-vde --disable-netmap --disable-rbd --disable-libiscsi --disable-libnfs --disable-smartcard --disable-libusb --disable-usb-redir --disable-seccomp --disable-glusterfs --disable-tpm --disable-numa --disable-opengl --disable-virglrenderer --disable-xfsctl --disable-vxhs --disable-slirp --disable-blobs --target-list=x86_64-softmmu --disable-rdma --disable-pvrdma --disable-attr --disable-vhost-net --disable-vhost-vsock --disable-vhost-scsi --disable-vhost-crypto --disable-vhost-user --disable-spice --disable-qom-cast-debug --disable-vxhs --disable-bochs --disable-cloop --disable-dmg --disable-qcow1 --disable-vdi --disable-vvfat --disable-qed --disable-parallels --disable-sheepdog --disable-avx2 --disable-nettle --disable-gnutls --disable-capstone --enable-tools
$ make
$ sudo make install

The above is untested writeup from memory (except the configure line, but that was for a different version) so expect some slight modifications to be needed.
You can then replace the qemu in your system (back it up) at /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 with that new built version for a try.

I'm currently rather busy, so the delay until I can provide a 6.0 might be a bit. But if you are unable to build your own you can surely wait for that to be ready.

Or - also an alternative - you can report it upstream despite not having tested in on 6.0 yet.
They might ask for it then, but chances are that someone more familiar with acpi or bhyve immediately recognizes it and can help.
If you happen to do so please leave me a link to the issue here so I'm able to track it.
