[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] [KVM] Needless to update msi route when only msi-x

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] [KVM] Needless to update msi route when only msi-x entry "control" section changed
Date: Sat, 4 May 2013 09:12:30 +0000

With regard to old version linux guest(e.g., rhel-5.5), in ISR processing, mask 
and unmask msi-x vector every time, which result in VMEXIT, then QEMU will 
invoke kvm_irqchip_update_msi_route() to ask KVM hypervisor to update the VM 
irq routing table. In KVM hypervisor, synchronizing RCU needed after updating 
routing table, so much time consumed for waiting in wait_rcu_gp(). So CPU usage 
in VM is so high, while from the view of host, VM's total CPU usage is so low. 
Masking/unmasking msi-x vector only set msi-x entry "control" section, needless 
to update VM irq routing table.
