[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v8 0/8] Add support for VM Generation ID

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v8 0/8] Add support for VM Generation ID
Date: Thu, 16 Feb 2017 15:15:32 -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 

    - Rebased to top of tree.
    - Fixed two small bugs in "write pointer" function
    - minor re-ordering of data in patches
    - Fixed unit test by adding delays/retries to reading RSDP table

    - Rebased to top of tree.
    - Added 'src_offset' field to "write pointer" command
    - Reworked unit tests based on feedback
    - various minor changes based on feedback
    - Added entries to MAINTAINERS file

    - Rebased to top of tree.
    - Changed device from sysbus to a simple device.  This removed the need for
      adding dynamic sysbus support to pc_piix boards.
    - Removed patch that introduced QWORD patching of AML.
    - Removed ability to set GUID via QMP/HMP.
    - Improved comments/documentation in code.

    - Added significantly more detail to the documentation.
    - Replaced the previously-implemented linker-loader command with a new one:
      "write pointer".  This allows writing the guest address of a fw_cfg blob 
      to an arbitrary offset in a writeable fw_cfg file visible to QEMU.  This 
      require support in SeaBIOS and OVMF (ongoing).
    - Fixed endianness issues throughout.
    - Several styling cleanups.

    - Rebased to top of tree.
    - Re-added document patch that was accidentally dropped from the last 
    - Added VMState functionality so that VGIA is restored properly.
    - Added Unit tests
    - 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
