[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/24] ppc/xics: simplify ICS and ICP creation

From: Cédric Le Goater
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/24] ppc/xics: simplify ICS and ICP creation
Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2017 11:17:59 +0100


The goal behind this series is to simplify the XICS interface by
moving back in the machine the way the ICS and ICP objects interact
together. It's up to the machine to implement this "fabric" logic by
providing a set of handlers of a QOM interface. These handlers are
used to grab an ICS or an ICP object and also do irq resends. The idea
was suggested by David Gibson.

The patchset is organised as follow. It starts with a preliminary
cleanup to get rid of the set_nr_irqs() and set_nr_servers()
handlers. It also moves the creation of the ICS and ICP objects from
the XICS object to the sPAPR machine. This simplifies the code
significantly and prepares ground for future changes.

As the sPAPR machine only makes use of a single ICS, we can store it
at the machine level. This lets us remove dependencies on the list of
ICS of the XICS object and simplify even more the code for the
following changes.

The QOM interface to interact with the ICS and ICP objects is then
introduced. These are moved under the machine and cleanups are done

Finally, the XICSState classes are removed as they have been
deprecated by the QOM interface.

After the initial cleanups, which are rather big, each patch are small
and simple. The make target 'check-qtest-ppc64' runs succesfully for
each of them and so does migration of HV and TCG guests.

The tree is available here :





 - The kernel ICP file descriptor 'kernel_xics_fd' was made static to
   ease changes but that could be an issue. We could move it under the
   sPAPR machine if needed.

Changes since v2:

 - renamed QOM Interface to XICSFabric
