[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC v3 00/11] basic channel IO passthrough infrastru

From: Dong Jia Shi
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC v3 00/11] basic channel IO passthrough infrastructure based on vfio
Date: Fri, 17 Feb 2017 09:28:33 +0100

The patch series introduce a basic channel I/O passthrough
infrastructure based on vfio.
- Focus on supporting dasd-eckd(cu_type/dev_type = 0x3990/0x3390) as
  the target device. 
- Support new qemu parameters in the style of:
    -machine s390-ccw-virtio(,s390-squash-mcss=on|off) \
    -device vfio-ccw,sysfsdev=$MDEV_PATH
  We want to support real (i.e. not virtual) channel devices even for
  guests that do not support MCSS-E (where guests may see devices from
  any channel subsystem image at once). As all virtio-ccw devices are in
  css 0xfe (and show up in the default css 0 for guests not activating
  MCSS-E), we need an option to squash e.g. passed-through channel devices
  from their real css (0-3, or 0 for hosts not activating MCSS-E) into
  the default css, that is what the new machine option s390-squash-css is

Build and install:
1. kernel configuration
2. modules required
  modprobe vfio.ko
  modprobe mdev.ko
  modprobe vfio_mdev.ko
  modprobe vfio_iommu_type1.ko
  modprobe vfio_ccw.ko
3. find a subchannel(0.0."%schid") of a DASD-ECKD device and bind it to
  vfio_ccw driver
  #find the dasd you can use with lsdasd on your host. e.g.:
  #unbind the ccw device from the subchannel
  echo 0.0."$devno" > /sys/bus/ccw/devices/0.0."$devno"/driver/unbind
  #unbind the subchannel from io_subchannel driver
  echo 0.0."$schid" > /sys/bus/css/devices/0.0."$schid"/driver/unbind
  #bind the subchannel with vfio_ccw driver
  echo 0.0."$schid" > /sys/bus/css/drivers/vfio_ccw/bind
4. create a mediated device
  #generate a uuid with uuidgen. e.g.:
  echo "$uuid" > \
5. pass-through this device to a vm
  -M s390-ccw-virtio,s390-squash-css=on \
  -device vfio-ccw,sysfsdev=/sys/bus/mdev/devices/$uuid \
  ... ...

Change log:

v2 -> v3:
1. Move vfio_ccw.h to uapi.
2. Adopt the vfio-ccw cmdline interface as vfio-pci with mdev devices.
3. Rename s390-map-css to s390-squash-mcss (patch 2), and update devno
   generation method (patch 5).
4. Patch 7: correct the validation of num_regions.
5. Patch 8: correct the validation of num_irqs.

v1 -> v2:
1. Rebase the implementation to the mdev framework approach.
2. Use pread and pwrite on an I/O region to issue I/O requests and
   receive results.

Dong Jia Shi (4):
  s390x/css: realize css_create_sch
  s390x/css: device support for s390-ccw passthrough
  vfio/ccw: get io region info
  vfio/ccw: update sense data if a unit check is pending

Xiao Feng Ren (7):
  vfio: linux-headers update for vfio-ccw
  s390x/css: add s390-squash-mcss machine option
  s390x/css: realize css_sch_build_schib
  vfio/ccw: vfio based subchannel passthrough driver
  vfio/ccw: get irqs info and set the eventfd fd
  s390x/css: introduce and realize ccw-request callback
  s390x/css: ccw translation infrastructure
