KVM: arm64: vgic-its: Make updates to propbaser/pendbaser atomic
There are two problems with the current implementation of the MMIO handlers for the propbaser and pendbaser: First, the write to the value itself is not guaranteed to be an atomic 64-bit write so two concurrent writes to the structure field could be intermixed. Second, because we do a read-modify-update operation without any synchronization, if we have two 32-bit accesses to separate parts of the register, we can loose one of them. By using the atomic cmpxchg64 we should cover both issues above. Reviewed-by: Andre Przywara <andre.przywara@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Christoffer Dall <christoffer.dall@linaro.org>
