[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] ARM adaptations for vhost irqfd setup

From: Eric Auger
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] ARM adaptations for vhost irqfd setup
Date: Thu, 9 Apr 2015 16:20:06 +0100

After the introduction of gicv2m, This series adds missing pieces to
run VIRTIO-PCI with vhost back-end on ARM.

It is proposed to use the kvm_gsi_direct_mapping modality that sets
the irqfd gsi to the MSI data value. With that trick there is no need
to create a KVM MSI routing entry featuring a different gsi.

The only adaptation needed for ARM consists in adding an architecture
specific function that converts the MSI data field into the actual
gsi index: there is an offset of 32 between the MSI data content
(SPI ID) and the SPI index that is passed to KVM_IRQFD ioctl. Once
this is done we can set the requested flags to enable vhost:
kvm_gsi_direct_mapping, kvm_msi_via_irqfd_allowed.

This was tested on XGene, on top of Christoffer's series,
[PATCH 0/3] Add support for for GICv2m and MSIs to arm-virt
