[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/11] S390x KVM support v4

From: Alexander Graf
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/11] S390x KVM support v4
Date: Thu, 26 Nov 2009 14:23:09 +0100

While S390x was one of the first targets that were supported by KVM it always
lacked qemu system emulation support.

In order to change that sad fact, I figured I'd just take on the task myself,
taking kuli (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/linux390/kuli.html),
Documentation/s390/kvm.txt and lguest as starting points to write a clean,
qemu'ish S390x Virtio machine emulation.

So now you can run Linux VMs on Linux on z/VM on LPAR on zSeries!

This is the resulting code. Please comment on things you like and also on the
ones you don't :-).

The patchset is based on Uli's S390x userspace emulation patches. There's not
really that much shared functionality, but I didn't want to reimplement the
configure wheels. So make sure to have his patches applied first.

Please only run S390x system virtualization using io threads. S390x has very
few intercepts and even less that actually reach userspace. So you'll end up
with a non-responsive VM without a dedicated IO thread.

Use: $ ./configure --target-list=s390x-softmmu --enable-io-thread

Currently only -kernel, -initrd and friends work. Booting from a real dasd
device is not supported.

Also to actually run this code you need a patch for an ugly bug in the kernel
module that Carsten sent a patch to on the ML.

I verified that the userspace actually works on a 2.6.27 (SLES11) kernel, so
if it doesn't work on current git, please tell me! I'm too afraid that I might
end up in a 3270 terminal to update the kernel on my z/VM instance :-).

##### WARNING #####

Apparently the qemu review process has scared off yet another developer for now.

So I'm sending this patchset without relying on Uli's set but rather
implemented small stubs for TCG host and TCG guest support, so we can run
on KVM. He promised me to send it again "soon" - whenever that is.

These stubs don't serve any purpose but to get KVM running, so you get no x86
on S390X or S390X on x86 for now!


v1 -> v2:

  - use new kvm_run variables
  - use DO_UPCAST
  - add bridge device for "info qtree"

v2 -> v3:

  - move memory allocation logic to qemu_ram_alloc

v3 -> v4:

  - minor bugfixes
  - adjust to more recent qdev nic code
  - zipl loader
  - include fake emulation series

v4 -> v5:

  - remove zipl loader
  - remove early printk
