[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 00/14]pc: q35: x2APIC support in kvm_apic mode

From: Igor Mammedov
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 00/14]pc: q35: x2APIC support in kvm_apic mode
Date: Mon, 9 May 2016 11:26:46 +0200

Series is based on top cpu hotplug refactoring(*1),
and extends current CPU/kvm_apic/generic pc machine
code to support x2APIC and upto 288 VCPUs when QEMU
is used with KVM's lapic.

Due to FW_CFG_MAX_CPUS (which is actually apic_id_limit)
being limited to uint16_t, the max possible APIC ID is
limitted to 2^16 with this series but that should
be sufficient for bumping VCPUs number for quite a while.

git gree for testing:
https://github.com/imammedo/qemu.git x2apic_rfc

To play with the feature, one would also need
seabios counterpart:
https://github.com/imammedo/seabios.git x2apic_rfc

[RFC 0/9] KVM: x86: break the xAPIC barrier

and Peter's IRQ remapping series.

[Qemu-devel] [RFC 00/42] ACPI CPU hotplug refactoring to support more than 255 
CPUs and PXM/OST methods

Igor Mammedov (14):
  pc: acpi: x2APIC support for MADT table
  pc: acpi: x2APIC support for SRAT table
  acpi: cphp: add support for x2APIC in _MAT method
  pc: leave max apic_id_limit only in legacy cpu hotplug code
  pc: apic: move MAX_APICS check to 'apic' class
  pc: apic_common: extend APIC ID property to 32bit
  pc: apic_common: restore APIC ID to initial ID on reset
  pc: apic_common: reset APIC ID to initial ID when switching into
    x2APIC mode
  pc: kvm_apic: pass APIC ID depending on xAPIC/x2APIC mode
  pc: clarify FW_CFG_MAX_CPUS usage comment
  increase MAX_CPUMASK_BITS from 255 to 288
  pc: add 'etc/boot-cpus' fw_cfg file for machine with more than 255
  pc: q35: bump max_cpus to 288
  DO NOT APPLY: hack to make 2nd CPU APIC ID to be x2APIC one
