Summary

XSAVE stands for similar x86 instruction xsave which places extended processor state into the memory area. The saving can be initiated by any userspace application, where the size of the frame being written to memory upon the instruction depends on processor capabilities and may vary between different models. This aspect may cause a problem in a case of images migration.
