[Qemu-devel] [virtio-dev][RFC 0/2] Signal Distribution Module virtio dev

From: Christian Pinto
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [virtio-dev][RFC 0/2] Signal Distribution Module virtio device specification
Date: Fri, 17 Jun 2016 18:03:12 +0200

Hi all,

This patch series proposes the specification of a new virtio device on which we
are working on, namely the Signal Distribution Module (SDM). 
The SDM routes inter-processor signals intra and inter QEMU
instances, using a user-defined communication channel. At the current state the 
SDM provides a local channel, for intra-QEMU signals, and a channel based on
sockets (UNIX or TCP) to exchange signals between processors in different
instances of QEMU. Each communication channel exports a common interface for 
the sake of ease of extension and integration of new channels.

In addition to the virtio version, a platform device version is available as
well to be used for cases where a processor is not running Linux but another
OS/firmware that does not support virtio.

This patch is related to :

[Qemu-devel][RFC v3 0/6] SDM Interface

where you can find the latest RFC patch set for the QEMU code of the virtio SDM 

Kernel code is publicly accessible from:


branch sdm_test_virtio_mod_v2.

QEMU code is accessible from:


branch sdm-dev-v3
