** (owner_nick) Add your own point you want to discuss here.
*** I realize this is late in the cycle, but this really helps alleviate potential live migration problems on some Intel hardware during upgrades and updates. This is technically a simple feature; but can also be considered a "bug fix" that unblocks live migration in some scenarios.
+
** (whoami-rajat) Discuss regarding the design of rebuild volume backed instance feature
*** Main Benefit: The ability to selectively disable CPU features for a guest means: newly launched VMs on a compute node can now disable offending guest CPU flags that block live migration. This facilitates live migration to a host with TSX=off.
+
*** https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/nova-specs/+/840155
*** Example: Today, a VM running on a compute node with Intel TSX=on (which is the default on all Linux kernels until v.5.11) cannot be migrated to a node with Intel TSX=off. But, the ability to selectively disable CPU flags alleviates this (and similar problems) — you can now keep TSX enabled on a host, and yet block it for the guest via `cpu_model_extra_flags`. This unblocks live-migrating the said guest to a host with TSX=off.
 
*** Notes: On relevant Intel processors, TSX is suggested to be disabled as it can be a potential security problem. TSX is disabled by default upstream Linux v.5.11 (Oct-2019)
 
** (stephenfin) https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/nova/+/772271 is stuck
 
*** elod is concerned about the backportability of this, as it has user-facing impacts. As noted by lyarwood though, the previous behavior was wrong
 
** (stephenfin) Outreachy projects?
 
*** I'm already helping mentor some NDSU students over in OSC/SDK land w/ diablo_rojo and gtema and could probably work with someone else. Do we have any nice, self-contained items that we'd like to do but just haven't had time for though?
 
*** /me thinks of things like PCI in placement (would need hardware though)
