[Qemu-devel] [RFC][PATCH v2 00/11] uq/master: irqfd-based interrupt inje

From: Jan Kiszka
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC][PATCH v2 00/11] uq/master: irqfd-based interrupt injection for virtio/vhost
Date: Thu, 17 May 2012 10:32:28 -0300

[ changes in v2: rebase over uq/master ]

This series is another major milestone of merging qemu-kvm into
upstream. It implements the required interfaces and logic to directly
inject MSI-X interrupts generated by the vhost-net kernel module into
the KVM in-kernel irqchip. This involves
 - establishing MSI vector notifiers, so far triggered on relevant MSI-X
   configuration changes of subscribed PCI devices
 - support for static vIRQ-to-MSI routes
 - an API for linking an IRQFD with such a vIRQ
 - the usage of these services in virtio-pci to enable direct injection

The series also contains some smaller refactorings of the KVM IRQ
routing API such as automatic committing of route changes. It applies on
top of the KVM MSI support series [1] posted recently. The complete
stack is available at

    git://git.kiszka.org/qemu-kvm.git queues/kvm-msi-irqfd

If the proposes API is acceptable, I will also provide some morphing
patches for qemu-kvm to make the merge of both trees smoother.

After this series, to only reasons to still use qemu-kvm for production
purposes will be PCI device assignment and potential dependencies on
legacy command line switches as well as vmstate formats (when requiring
backward migration support). However, the majority of users should be
able to switch to upstream QEMU seamlessly and finally receive the same
level of performance on x86.
