[Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/4] VFIO Platform device featuring IRQ forwarding

From: Eric Auger
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/4] VFIO Platform device featuring IRQ forwarding
Date: Mon, 4 May 2015 13:49:54 +0100

This series adds IRQ forwarding support in the VFIO platform device.

The VFIO platform device uses the KVM-VFIO device to enable IRQ forwarding.

Dependency List:
- QEMU KVM platform device passthrough and its dependencies
  see https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2015-04/msg04379.html
- kernel forwarding series:
  see (https://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg115253.html)

- QEMU pieces can be found at:
  (branch vfio_integ_v15_fwd)
- kernel pieces can be found at:
  (branch 4.1-rc1_forward)

The patch series was tested on Calxeda Midway (ARMv7) where one xgmac
is assigned to KVM host while the second one is assigned to the guest.
Reworked PCI device is not tested.

Wiki for Calxeda Midway setup:


v1 -> v2:
- update following
  x introduction of kvm qemu_irq/gsi hash table
  x new irq connect notifier
  x 2 stage eventfd/irqfd setup which complexifies irq forwarding setup

- that code originally was in KVM platform device passthrough series (v8),
  now moved in a separate RFC since dependent on many RFCs.

Best Regards
