FWIW, I am testing a guest patch that enables zPCI without AIS. Its as simple as

Sounds good. Presumably this makes the adapter interrupt handling work
as for virtio (and qdio)? Is there any ais-less pci hardware out in the

Do you have something in mind, or is curiosity the only reason for asking?

I just want to make sure we don't miss anything.

ais is z specific, not PCI specific. So PCI cards should not care as far as I 
can tell.

I bet Conny meant PCI hardware globaly, including zPCI adapters.
I bet none but I will better ask Sebastian or Gerald if they know.

I side with Christian: it is a machine thing and not a card thing. So
the question is if there is a z machine which supports zpci but does
not support AIS. My guess is that such a machine was never produced.

That's exactly what I meant, and I would not expect such a machine to
exist either.

That machine is called qemu 2.10 :-p

FWIW, I talked with Sebastian about that and he is fine with such a change. He
required some changes and I will work on such a patch.

My analyze is that providing AIS to the guest can work, with the precaution to handle spurious interrupts, until we use GISA for PCI.

Then when we introduce GISA for PCI, we will need to think again about providing AIS to the guest.
