[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/11] pc: allow to use -device/device_add for CPUs

From: Igor Mammedov
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/11] pc: allow to use -device/device_add for CPUs
Date: Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:54:18 +0200

Series enabling usage of -device/device_add for adding CPUs
as devices. Using -device/device_add in combination with
query-hotpluggable-cpus QMP command allows to hotplug CPUs
at any not used possition and then safely migrate QEMU
instance by specifying hotadded CPUs on target with help
of -device CLI option like with any other device.
Having been able to hotadd arbitrary CPUs and migrate also
opens poosibility to hot-remove arbitrary CPUs, which will
be a separate series on top of this one.

Series depends on following not yet commited patchsets:
 1: [PATCH v2 00/10] ACPI CPU hotplug refactoring to support unplug and more 
than 255 CPUs
 2: [PATCH v2 0/6] cpus: make "-cpu cpux, features" global properties
   3: [PATCH v2 00/10] globals: Clean up validation and error checking

  target-i386: cpu: use uint32_t for X86CPU.apic_id
  pc: add x86_topo_ids_from_apicid()
  pc: extract CPU lookup into a separate function
  pc: cpu: consolidate apic-id validity checks in pc_cpu_pre_plug()
  target-i386: cpu: replace custom apic-id setter/getter with static
  target-i386: add socket/core/thread properties to X86CPU
  pc: set APIC ID based on socket/core/thread ids if it's not been set
  pc: implement query-hotpluggable-cpus callback
  pc: register created initial and hotpluged CPUs in one place
  pc: delay setting number of boot CPUs to machine_done time
  pc: cpu: allow device_add to be used with x86 cpu
