[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 00/15] PATCH 00/15] NVDIMM: introduce nvdimm labe

From: Xiao Guangrong
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 00/15] PATCH 00/15] NVDIMM: introduce nvdimm label support
Date: Fri, 20 May 2016 16:19:57 +0800

Changelog in v2:
Thanks for Stefan's review, the changes in this version are:
- rename nvdimm device parameter 'reserve-label' to 'label-size' to
  specify the size of label
- add comment to explain why assert() used in nvdimm_assert_rw_label_data()
  is safe
- follow the code style of 'foo() return;' if nothing is returned by fool()
- fix the value of "Non-existing-Memory-Device"
- fix the handling the DSM functions we currently did not support

This patchset is against commit 2912f22759 (fixup! virtio: convert to use DMA
api) on pci branch of Michael's git tree and can be found at:
      https://github.com/xiaogr/qemu.git nvdimm-label-v2

This is the last part of vNVDIMM implementation which introduces nvdimm
label support

Currently Linux NVDIMM driver does not support namespace operation on this
kind of PMEM, apply below changes to support dynamical namespace:

You can append a NVDIMM device in guest and do:                       
# cd /sys/bus/nd/devices/
# cd namespace0.0/
# echo `uuidgen` > uuid
# echo `expr 1024 \* 1024 \* 128` > size
then reload nd.pmem.ko

You can see /dev/pmem0 appears
