[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/7] Add system_powerdown support on ARM through ACP

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/7] Add system_powerdown support on ARM through ACPI and DT
Date: Tue, 12 May 2015 12:24:09 +0800

From: Shannon Zhao <address@hidden>

ACPI SPEC 5.0 defines GPIO-signaled ACPI Events for Hardware-reduced
platforms(like ARM). It uses GPIO pin to trigger an event to the guest.
For QEMU, here we add PL061 GPIO controller and use PIN 3 for
system_powerdown, reserving PIN 0, 1, 2 for PCI hotplug, CPU hotplug and
memory hotplug.

This patchset adds system_powerdown support on ARM through both ACPI and
DT ways. It adds a GPIO controller(here is PL061) in machine virt and
uses GPIO-singled event for ACPI while gpio-keys for DT. It can be
fetched from [1] and has been tested for the guests starting by ACPI or
DT while guests use systemd or acpid.

a) ACPI way. As ACPI on ARM64 doesn't support probing amba device, we
should convert the PL061 to platform device(apply patch[2]). In addition,
we should use ACPI to start VM, referring to below script. QEMU_EFI.fd
can be fetched from [3]. 
Note: The guest kernel must have the ARM64 ACPI support(the related
patches are in upstream kernel now) and uart SBSA support for ACPI [4].

    qemu-system-aarch64 \
    -smp 1 -m 1024 -M virt \
    -cpu cortex-a57 -nographic \
    -monitor telnet::4444,server,nowait \
    -bios QEMU_EFI.fd \
    -kernel Image \
    -initrd guestfs.cpio.gz \
    -append "rdinit=/sbin/init console=ttySBSA mem=512M root=/dev/ram 
earlycon=pl011,0x9000000 rw acpi=force"

b) DT way. Apply patch[2] as well. Start vm as usual.

    qemu-system-aarch64 \
    -smp 1 -m 1024 -M virt \
    -cpu cortex-a57 -nographic \
    -monitor telnet::4444,server,nowait \
    -kernel Image \
    -initrd guestfs.cpio.gz \
    -append "rdinit=/sbin/init console=ttyAMA0 mem=512M root=/dev/ram 
earlycon=pl011,0x9000000 rw"

Guest internal setup:
If your guest FS uses systemd, you should check file
/lib/udev/rules.d/70-power-switch.rules and add the following line in it
if it doesn't exist.

SUBSYSTEM=="input", KERNEL=="event*", SUBSYSTEMS=="platform",
ATTRS{keys}=="116", TAG+="power-switch"

If your guest FS uses acpid, you should check it has
/etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh and /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn. Refer to [5] for
the setup of acpid.
