[Qemu-arm] [PATCH v9 0/5] add ACPI node for fw_cfg on pc and arm

From: Gabriel L. Somlo
Subject: [Qemu-arm] [PATCH v9 0/5] add ACPI node for fw_cfg on pc and arm
Date: Fri, 19 Feb 2016 13:20:24 -0500

Generate an ACPI DSDT node for fw_cfg on pc and arm guests.

New since v8:

        - patch 3/5: on pc/x86, place FWCF node in scope \_SB.PCI0
          (instead of directly under \_SB), to prevent any possible
          resource conflict as might be observed by Windows
          (thanks again to Igor Mammedov for the suggestion!)


>New since v7:
>       - edited commit blurb on 3/5 to match updated content, i.e. that
>         the ACPI node is now inserted into the DSDT (no longer the SSDT).
>         (Thanks to Igor Mammedov for catching that!)
>>New since v6:
>>      - rebased to fit on top of fb306ff and f264d36, which moved things
>>        around in pc's acpi-build.c (only patch 3/5 affected);
>>      - kernel-side fw_cfg sysfs driver accepted into upstream linux
>>>New since v5:
>>>     - rebased on top of latest QEMU git master
>>>>New since v4:
>>>>    - rebased on top of Marc's DMA series
>>>>    - drop machine compat dependency for insertion into x86/ssdt
>>>>      (patch 3/5), following agreement between Igor and Eduardo
>>>>    - [mm]io register range now covers DMA register as well, if
>>>>      available.
>>>>    - s/bios/firmware in doc file updates
>>>>>New since v3:
>>>>>   - rebased to work on top of 87e896ab (introducing pc-*-25 classes),
>>>>>     inserting fw_cfg acpi node only for machines >= 2.5.
>>>>>   - reintroduce _STA with value 0x0B (bit 2 for u/i visibility turned
>>>>>     off to avoid Windows complaining -- thanks Igor for catching that!)
>>>>>If there's any other feedback besides questions regarding the
>>>>>appropriateness of "QEMU0002" as the value of _HID, please don't hesitate!
>>>>>>New since v2:
>>>>>>  - pc/i386 node in ssdt only on machine types *newer* than 2.4
>>>>>>    (as suggested by Eduardo)
>>>>>>I appreciate any further comments and reviews. Hopefully we can make
>>>>>>this palatable for upstream, modulo the lingering concerns about whether
>>>>>>"QEMU0002" is ok to use as the value of _HID, which I'll hopefully get
>>>>>>sorted out with the kernel crew...
>>>>>>>New since v1:
>>>>>>> - expose control register size (suggested by Marc MarĂ­)
>>>>>>> - leaving out _UID and _STA fields (thanks Shannon & Igor)
>>>>>>> - using "QEMU0002" as the value of _HID (thanks Michael)
>>>>>>> - added documentation blurb to docs/specs/fw_cfg.txt
>>>>>>>   (mainly to record usage of the "QEMU0002" string with fw_cfg).
>>>>>>>> This series adds a fw_cfg device node to the SSDT (on pc), or to the
>>>>>>>> DSDT (on arm).
>>>>>>>>        - Patch 1/3 moves (and renames) the BIOS_CFG_IOPORT (0x510)
>>>>>>>>          define from pc.c to pc.h, so that it could be used from
>>>>>>>>          acpi-build.c in patch 2/3.
>>>>>>>>        - Patch 2/3 adds a fw_cfg node to the pc SSDT.
>>>>>>>>        - Patch 3/3 adds a fw_cfg node to the arm DSDT.
>>>>>>>> I made up some names - "FWCF" for the node name, and "FWCF0001"
>>>>>>>> for _HID; no idea whether that's appropriate, or how else I should
>>>>>>>> figure out what to use instead...
>>>>>>>> Also, using scope "\\_SB", based on where fw_cfg shows up in the
>>>>>>>> output of "info qtree". Again, if that's wrong, please point me in
>>>>>>>> the right direction.
>>>>>>>> Re. 3/3 (also mentioned after the commit blurb in the patch itself),
>>>>>>>> I noticed none of the other DSDT entries contain a _STA field, 
>>>>>>>> wondering
>>>>>>>> why it would (not) make sense to include that, same as on the PC.

Gabriel L. Somlo (5):
  fw_cfg: expose control register size in fw_cfg.h
  pc: fw_cfg: move ioport base constant to pc.h
  acpi: pc: add fw_cfg device node to dsdt
  acpi: arm: add fw_cfg device node to dsdt
  fw_cfg: document ACPI device node information
