[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/40] ivshmem: Fixes, cleanups, device model spl

From: Markus Armbruster
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/40] ivshmem: Fixes, cleanups, device model split
Date: Tue, 15 Mar 2016 19:34:15 +0100

Based on Paolo's "[PULL 0/8] Memory, icount, chardev, KVM changes for

Major issues addressed by this series:

* The specification document is incomplete and vague.  Rewritten.

* When a peer goes away, and its ID gets reused for another one,
  interrupts don't work.

* When configured for interrupts, we receive shared memory from the
  server some time after realize().  This creates a (usually
  short-lived) "no shared memory, yet" state.  If the guest wins the
  race, it is exposed to this state (known issue, if you count burying
  in docs/specs/ as "known").  If migration wins the race, it fails or
  corrupts memory.

* Interrupts are unreliable in a (usually small) time window after the
  destination peer connects.  I believe fixing this will require
  changing the client/server protocol, so just document it for now.

* The device isn't capable to tell guest software whether it is
  configured for interrupts.  Fix that in a new, backwards-compatible
  revision of the guest ABI, and bump the PCI revision.  Deprecate the
  old revision.

* The device properties are a confusing mess and badly checked.
  Clean that up.

* Migration with interrupts relies on server behavior not guaranteed
  by the specification.  Tighten the specification.

Paolo, I'd like your opinion on PATCH 1 and 3.  I'm getting competent
review for my other patches elsewhere, but you're of course welcome to
review them, too.

* PATCH 01+02 picked up by Paolo, dropped from this series
* PATCH 01: Tidy up whitespace [Marc-André]
* PATCH 02: Refine help text and comments, R-by retained
* PATCH 03: Tidy up whitespace [checkpatch], refine help text and
  comments, steal an idea from Marc-André to simplify the code a bit
* PATCH 19: Drop the other redundant guard instead [Marc-André]
* PATCH 20: Fix a comment [Marc-André]
* PATCH 23+31+32: Rebase for commit 8e41fb6 "memory: Drop
  MemoryRegion.ram_addr", R-bys retained
* PATCH 26: Explain the "shmem is mapped" assertion [Marc-André]
* PATCH 31: Mention permission change and portability issues in commit
  message [Marc-André]
* PATCH 37: Minor fallout from PATCH 19, R-by retained

* PATCH 01: Rewritten [Paolo]
* PATCH 02-05: New
* PATCH 12: Typo [Eric]
* PATCH 22: Commit message improved [Paolo]
* PATCH 25: Variables renamed [Marc-André]

* PATCH 27+28: Move an assertion from PATCH 27 to PATCH 28
* PATCH 31: Fix missing return on error [Marc-André]
* PATCH 33: Rewritten [Paolo]
* PATCH 34: Commit message improved, memory leak plugged by avoiding
  dynamic allocation [Paolo]
* PATCH 37: Botched conditionals fixed [Marc-André]
* PATCH 40: Bury dead code [Marc-André]
