[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 0/9] Core based CPU hotplug for PowerPC sPAPR

From: Bharata B Rao
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 0/9] Core based CPU hotplug for PowerPC sPAPR
Date: Fri, 10 Jun 2016 06:28:59 +0530


This is the next version of the CPU hotplug patchset for PowerPC
sPAPR target. The hotplug semantics looks like this:

(qemu) device_add POWER8E-spapr-cpu-core,id=core2,core-id=16[,threads=4]
(qemu) device_add host-spapr-cpu-core,id=core2,core-id=16[,threads=4]
(qemu) device_add POWER8E_v2.1-spapr-cpu-core,id=core2,core-id=16[,threads=4]

Changes in v4
- Rebased against David Gibson's ppc-cpu-hotplug and hence dropped those
  patches that are already part of that tree.
- We were assuming the CPU thread to be always of type PowerPCCPU which
  needn't be true. Hence use actual CPU type's instance_size when
  object_initialize'ing the threads as per David's suggestion. This requires
  us to know the instance_size for a given type for which a new QOM API
  object_type_get_size() has been introduced in this version.
- Consolidate CPU init related routines in spapr_cpu_core.c. As part of this
  move spapr_cpu_init() and its dependencies to spapr_cpu_core.c.
- Got rid of the temporary unplug list when removing CPU cores.
- Folded spapr_cpu_core_create_threads() into spapr_cpu_core_realize() and
  fixed the error path in in spapr_cpu_core_realize().
- Add support for -cpu host.

TODOs remaining
- Work on David's suggestion of intializing CPU's ObjectClass in
  class_init rather than instance_init.
- Use object_initialize_with_type instead of object_initialize when
  creating CPU threads of a core.
- Use vcpu_dt_id logic when populating core id in
- Handle CPU compat properly (-cpu host,compat=POWER7)
