[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/7] pass cpu online/offline event bewteen QEMU

From: liguang
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/7] pass cpu online/offline event bewteen QEMU and linux kernel by ACPI Embedded Controller
Date: Wed, 29 May 2013 09:47:35 +0800

patch 1 adds ACPI Embedded Controller (EC),
ACPI SPEC v5 chapter 12
"ACPI Embedded Controller Interface Specification"

EC is a standard ACPI device, it plays flexible roles,
especially be event carrier, it can pass events between platform
and OS, so OS can execute _Qxx method which defined
by yourself and query EC's ACPI space which can be a buffer for
many purposes

here, I want to deliver CPU online/offline event between
OS and QEMU for CPU hotplug feature, then we will don't
need to "echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online"
again after 'cpu-add' and also for offline to do real cpu
what I am trying to do is emulated physical addition/removal
(like described by linux kernel document for cpu hotplug --
linux-2.6/Documentation/cpu-hotplug.txt) for QEMU.

these RFC patches are sent for demo what I am trying to do.

the design process simply like following:

cpu-add/del --> EC space & sci setting --> kernel EC driver gpe handler
                                      listen cpu hotplug event
                                      query EC space for cpu status
cpu online/offline process

         acpi: add ACPI Embedded Controller support
         ich9: add notifer for ec to generate sci
         ec: add operations for _Qxx events
         piix4: add notifer for ec to generate sci
         piix4: add events for cpu hotplug
         qmp: add 'cpu-del' command
         pc: add EC qdev init for piix & q35
