    This update for QEMU, a fast processor emulator, backports support to passthrough the pschange-mc-no CPU flag. The virtualised MSR seen by a guest is set to show the bug as fixed, allowing to disable iTLB Multihit mitigations in nested hypervisors (cf. DSA 4564-1).

    Debian Bug     : 944623
    
    This update for QEMU, a fast processor emulator, backports support to
    passthrough the pschange-mc-no CPU flag. The virtualised MSR seen by a
    guest is set to show the bug as fixed, allowing to disable iTLB Multihit
    mitigations in nested hypervisors (cf. DSA 4564-1).
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:3.1+dfsg-8+deb10u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of qemu please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
