[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] vhost: Update 'ioeventfd_started' with host noti

From: Felipe Franciosi
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] vhost: Update 'ioeventfd_started' with host notifiers
Date: Wed, 9 Nov 2016 04:44:36 -0800

Following the recent refactor of virtio notfiers [1], more specifically
the patch that uses virtio_bus_set_host_notifier [2] by default, core
virtio code requires 'ioeventfd_started' to be set to true/false when
the host notifiers are configured. Because not all vhost devices were
update (eg. vhost-scsi) to use the new interface, this value is always
set to false.

When booting a guest with a vhost-scsi backend controller, SeaBIOS will
initially configure the device which sets all notifiers. The guest will
continue to boot fine until the kernel virtio-scsi driver reinitialises
the device causing a stop followed by another start. Since
ioeventfd_started was never set to true, the 'stop' operation triggered
by virtio_bus_set_host_notifier() will not result in a call to
virtio_pci_ioeventfd_assign(assign=false). This leaves the memory
regions with stale notifiers and results on the next start triggering
the following assertion:

  kvm_mem_ioeventfd_add: error adding ioeventfd: File exists

This patch updates ioeventfd_started whenever the notifiers are set or
cleared, fixing this issue.

  - Update ioeventfd_started in vhost_dev_enable/disable_notifiers()
    instead of vhost_scsi_start/stop().
  - Reword the commit message accordingly.
