KVM: Add compat ioctl for KVM_SET_SIGNAL_MASK
KVM has an ioctl to define which signal mask should be used while running inside VCPU_RUN. At least for big endian systems, this mask is different on 32-bit and 64-bit systems (though the size is identical). Add a compat wrapper that converts the mask to whatever the kernel accepts, allowing 32-bit kvm user space to set signal masks. This patch fixes qemu with --enable-io-thread on ppc64 hosts when running 32-bit user land. Signed-off-by: Alexander Graf <> Signed-off-by: Avi Kivity <>
