[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 00/10] ACPI CPU hotplug refactoring to support un

From: Igor Mammedov
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 00/10] ACPI CPU hotplug refactoring to support unplug and more than 255 CPUs
Date: Thu, 16 Jun 2016 18:55:33 +0200

  - dropped consolidate legacy ACPI CPU hotplug as they are in master by now    
  - pc: start with legacy hotplug and let 2.7 machine type and older            
    to switch inot new hotplug mode. That way legacy BIOS will                  
    still work fine as it uses built in ACPI tables and will continue           
    to use legacy CPU hotplug interface.                                        
  - poll for CPU objects with events (insert/remove) instead of                 
    looping over all CPUs to find CPUs with events.                             
  - drop dynamic PXM support as it could be implemented in static way           
    at acpi tabels build time. It will be an additional series on top of this.  
  - resplit patches on basic present CPU support, hot-add and hot-remove parts  
        1-7: add new CPU hotplug impl.                                          
          8: makes 2.7 machine type to use new AML code that                    
             will switch piix4/ich9 into new mode +                             
             switching logic with migration glue for piix4/ich9                 
          9: drops the last dependency in ACPI parts on apic_id_limit           
             sized map.                                                         
  - drop machine.cpu-hotplug property and leave CPU hotplug                     
    always enabled as it used to be.                                            
    (it also simplifies, series a bit)                                          
  - reshuffle/squash some patches to make series bisectable                     
    wrt 'make check' failures                                                   
  - add doc comment in qapi schema                                              
  - fix 'make check' error for mips target, disableCPU hotplug                  
    code path in piix4_pm for mips                                              
  - drop some intermediate expected ACPI tables updates                         
  - replace _MAT method with named buffer object                                
Current ACPI interface for CPU hotplug supports hoti-adding                     
only upto 255 CPUs and lacks means to convey additional                         
information needed _OST methods support.                                        
Also being bitmap based with bit position specifying APIC ID                    
it doesn't scale up well for 32-bit APIC IDs that will come                     
with x2APIC support.                                                            
So add another QEMU-guest interface using as model memory-hotplug.              
New interface will be used since 2.7 machine types and will                     
    - more than 255 CPUs with 32-bit APIC ID value                              
    - a registers set to communicate OST information                            
      (extendable without breaking IO layout)                                   
    - possible to reuse for ARM's 'virt' machine type                           
      with minimal tweaks (add init for MMIO, add                               
      ACPI hooks on CPU hotplug path, MADT generation)                          
Tested with following guests: RHEL7, WS2003EEx64, WS2012R2x64                   
 * unplug is tested only with RHEL7 as Windows doesn't support it.              
 * tested that migration works as well.                                         
git tree for testing:
