[Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/4] vhost-user: Specify and implement device IOTLB

From: Maxime Coquelin
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/4] vhost-user: Specify and implement device IOTLB support
Date: Fri, 14 Apr 2017 19:40:52 +0200

This series aims at specifying ans implementing the protocol update
required to support device IOTLB with user backends.

In this second version, the slave requests channel part is re-used
from Marc-André's series submitted last year[0], with main changes
from original version being request/feature names renaming and addition
of the REPLY_ACK feature support.

Regarding IOTLB protocol, one noticeable change is the IOTLB miss request
reply made optionnal (i.e. only if slave requests it by setting the
VHOST_USER_NEED_REPLY flag in the message header). This change provides
more flexibility in the backend implementation of the feature.

The protocol is very close to kernel backends, except that a new
communication channel is introduced to enable the slave to send
requests to the master.
