[Qemu-devel] KVM call minutes for July 20

From: Chris Wright
Subject: [Qemu-devel] KVM call minutes for July 20
Date: Tue, 20 Jul 2010 07:45:51 -0700
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.20 (2009-08-17)

- start w/ git tree + pull requests
- release process is separate from commit access
- justin will put up a tree for pull requests
- there's current backlog, what about that?
- anthony's concern with -stable is the testing (upstream tree gets more
  testing than -stable)
- 0.12.5?
  - planning to do next w/ 0.13 release
  - aurelien may cut a release
  - justin will do some sanity testing, most patches are in fedora anyway

- rc RSN (hopefully this week, top priority for anthony)

kvm testsuite
- was planning to clean up and contribute to qemu
- now thinking perhaps just split it out to its own repo
  - not really qemu code, not really kvm code, not cross compile, etc..
  - could use std serial device
  - could use vga (needs mmio space)
- would like to add nested svm and (more important) nested vmx
  - small bit to copy l1 to l2 state, to make guest nested
  - need framework, can then require nested patches come w/ regression tests
- current testsuite failing on qemu (shows softmmu issues, any takers?)

fw_cfg issues
- mostly on list
- concerns about dma interface (too close to use case specific hack)
- rep could be optimized in general
  - each byte == function call
- possible pull in 4k (instead of 1k) on each exit
- bar for changes should be no new interfaces
