This patch has been added to the 3.12 stable tree. If you have any
objections, please let us know.



commit d10bcd473301888f957ec4b6b12aa3621be78d59 upstream.

When entering the kernel at EL2, we fail to initialise the MDCR_EL2
register which controls debug access and PMU capabilities at EL1.

This patch ensures that the register is initialised so that all traps
are disabled and all the PMU counters are available to the host. When a
guest is scheduled, KVM takes care to configure trapping appropriately.
