[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 1/3] acpi: update RSDP on guest access

From: Igor Mammedov
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 1/3] acpi: update RSDP on guest access
Date: Mon, 9 Feb 2015 13:59:53 +0000

From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <address@hidden>

RSDT offset can change across reboots and that makes
immutable RSDP, which is build at startup, point to
incorrect place in ACPI table blob. That results in
BIOS corrupting tables and guest OS failing to find
ACPI tables.
We really should have put it in a ROM region, but
we can't change that for old machine types,
let's just set the callback and update it explicitly.

  * do not forget to pass build_state to callback
    otherwise it's NOP.
