[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 3/4] migration: spapr: migrate ccs_list in spapr sta

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 3/4] migration: spapr: migrate ccs_list in spapr state
Date: Mon, 24 Apr 2017 19:08:27 -0300

From: Jianjun Duan <address@hidden>

ccs_list in spapr state maintains the device tree related
information on the rtas side for hotplugged devices. In racing
situations between hotplug events and migration operation, a rtas
hotplug event could be migrated from the source guest to target
guest, or the source guest could have not yet finished fetching
the device tree when migration is started, the target will try
to finish fetching the device tree. By migrating ccs_list, the
target can fetch the device tree properly.

In theory there would be other alternatives besides migrating the
css_list to fix this. For example, we could add a flag that indicates
whether a device is in the middle of the configure_connector during the
migration process, in the post_load we can detect if this flag
is active and then return an error informing the guest to restart the
hotplug process. However, the DRC state can still be modified outside of
hotplug. Using:

   drmgr -c pci -s <drc_index> -r
   drmgr -c pci -s <drc_index> -a

it is possible to return a device to firmware and then later take it
back and reconfigure it. This is not a common case but it's not prohibited,
and performing a migration between these 2 operations would fail because
the default coldplug state on target assumes a configured state in
the source*. Migrating ccs_list is one solution that cover this
case as well.

ccs_list is put in a subsection in the spapr state VMSD to make
sure migration across different versions is not broken.
