[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/2] enable iommu with -device

From: Marcel Apfelbaum
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/2] enable iommu with -device
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 17:01:28 +0300

This is a proposal on how to create the iommu with
'-device intel-iommu' instead of '-machine,iommu=on'.

The device is part of the machine properties because we wanted
to ensure it is created before any other PCI device.

The alternative is to skip the bus_master_enable_region at
the time the device is created. We can create this region
at machine_done phase. (patch 1)

Then we can enable sysbus devices for PC machines and make all the
init steps inside the iommu realize function. (patch 2)

The series is working, but a lot of issues are not resolved:
  - minimum testing was done
  - the iommu addr should be passed (maybe) in command line rather than 
  - enabling sysbus devices for PC machines is risky, I am not aware yet
    of the side effects of this modification.
  - I am not sure moving the bus_master_enable_region to machine_done
    is with no undesired effects.
