kvm: cap halt polling at exactly halt_poll_ns
When growing halt-polling, there is no check that the poll time exceeds the limit. It's possible for vcpu->halt_poll_ns grow once past halt_poll_ns, and stay there until a halt which takes longer than vcpu->halt_poll_ns. For example, booting a Linux guest with halt_poll_ns=11000: ... kvm:kvm_halt_poll_ns: vcpu 0: halt_poll_ns 0 (shrink 10000) ... kvm:kvm_halt_poll_ns: vcpu 0: halt_poll_ns 10000 (grow 0) ... kvm:kvm_halt_poll_ns: vcpu 0: halt_poll_ns 20000 (grow 10000) Signed-off-by: David Matlack <dmatlack@google.com> Fixes: aca6ff29c4063a8d467cdee241e6b3bf7dc4a171 Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>
