[Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v3 10/35] spapr: add support for the SET_OS_PENDING co

From: Cédric Le Goater
Subject: [Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v3 10/35] spapr: add support for the SET_OS_PENDING command (XIVE)
Date: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 14:43:06 +0200

This command offers the possibility for the O/S to adjust the IPB to
allow a CPU to process event queues of other priorities during one
physical interrupt cycle. This is not currently used by the XIVE
native exploitation driver for sPAPR in Linux but it is by the

More from Ben :

  It's a way to avoid the SW replay on EOI.

  IE, assume you have 2 interrupts in the queue. You take the exception,
  ack the first one, process it etc... Then you EOI, the HW won't send
  a second notification. You need to look at the queue and continue
  consuming until it's empty.

  Today Linux checks the queue on EOI and use a SW mechanism to
  synthesize a new pseudo-external interrupt.

  This MMIO command would allow the OS to instead set back the
  corresponding priority bit to 1 in the IPB and cause the HW to
  re-emit the interrupt instead of SW.

  Linux doesn't use this today because DD1 didn't support it for the
  HV level, but other OSes might and we also might use it when we do
  groups, thus allowing redistribution.
