[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/6] Add support for VM Generation ID

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/6] Add support for VM Generation ID
Date: Sun, 22 Jan 2017 23:32:46 -0800

From: Ben Warren <address@hidden>

This patch set adds support for passing a GUID to Windows guests.  It is a
re-implementation of previous patch sets written by Igor Mammedov et al, but
this time passing the GUID data as a fw_cfg blob.

This patch set has dependencies on new guest functionality, in particular the
support for a new linker-loader command and the ability to write back data
to QEMU over a DMA link.  Work is in flight in both SeaBIOS and OVMF to support 

    - Added second writeable fw_cfg for storing the VM Generaiton ID
      address.  This uses a new linker-loader command for instructing the
      guest to write back the allocated address.  A patch for SeaBIOS has been
      and the resulting binary will need to be pulled into QEMU once accepted.
    - Setting VM Generation ID by command line or qmp/hmp now accepts an "auto"
      value, whereby QEMU generates a random GUID.
    - Incorporated review comments from v2 mainly around code styling and AML 
    - Changed to use the E05 ACPI event instead of E00
        - Removed "changed" boolean parameter as it is unneeded
        - Added ACPI Notify logic
        - Style changes to pass checkpatch.pl
        - Added support for dynamic sysbus to pc_piix boards

Ben Warren (4):
  ACPI: Add a function for building named qword entries
  linker-loader: add new 'allocate and return address' cmd
  ACPI: Add Virtual Machine Generation ID support
  PC: Support dynamic sysbus on pc_i440fx

Igor Mammedov (2):
  qmp/hmp: add query-vm-generation-id and 'info vm-generation-id'
  qmp/hmp: add set-vm-generation-id commands
