From: Alex Bennée
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v6 00/19] Remaining MTTCG Base patches and ARM enablement
Date: Wed, 9 Nov 2016 14:57:29 +0000


A chunk of the MTTCG work was merged for 2.8 so this constitutes what
is left for the next cycle. The changes are minor except for a new
patch to reduce BQL contention on ARM during yield/wfi instructions.

I've also taken the time to update the design document which now
covers all the solutions for the various design requirements in the

The one outstanding question is how to deal with the TLB flush
semantics of the various guest architectures. Currently flushes to
other vCPUs will happen at the end of their currently executing
Translation Block which could mean the originating vCPU makes
assumptions about flushes having been completed when they haven't. In
practice this hasn't been a problem and I haven't been able to
construct a test case so far that would fail in such a case. This is
probably because most tear downs of the other vCPU TLBs tend to be
done while the other vCPUs are not doing much. If anyone can come up
with a test case that would fail if this assumption isn't met then
please let me know.

We already have all the tools to meet these requirements if we want by
scheduling safe async work however this might slow things down if
these sort of flushes are frequent.

These patches apply cleanly on top of the current master. Please
review the code and I look forward to seeing other architectures
enable MTTCG on top of this series.

Alex Bennée (15):
