From: Zhu Yijun <address@hidden>

With kernel 4.11, iommu/smmu will populate the MSI IOVA reserved window and
PCI reserved window which has to be excluded from Guest iova allocations.

And on certain HiSilicon platforms (hip06/hip07), the GIC ITS and PCIe RC 
deviates from the standard implementation will reserve the hw msi regions in
the smmu-v3 driver which means these address regions will not be translated.


On such platforms, reserved memory regions will export like this:

root:~# cat /sys/kernel/iommu_groups/7/reserved_regions
0x00000000a8800000 0x00000000affeffff reserved
0x00000000c6000000 0x00000000c601ffff msi

However, it falls within the Qemu default virtual memory address space.

Take a look at hw/arm/virt.c:

[VIRT_MEM] =             { 0x40000000, RAMLIMIT_BYTES },
    . . .

    memory_region_allocate_system_memory(ram, NULL, "mach-virt.ram",
memory_region_add_subregion(sysmem, vms->memmap[VIRT_MEM].base, ram);

So suppose we allocate 4GB mem to a VM, there is a chance that the reserved
regions will get allocated for a Guest VF DMA iova and it will fail.

This patchset create holes in the Qemu RAM address space which exclude
the sysfs exported regions.

Zhu Yijun (5):
  hw/vfio: Add function for getting reserved_region of device iommu
  hw/arm/virt: Enable dynamic generation of guest RAM memory regions
  hw/arm: add scattered RAM memory region support
  hw/arm/boot: set fdt size cell of memory node from mem_list
  hw/arm/virt-acpi-build: Build srat table according to mem_list
