[Qemu-devel] [PATCH V6 0/7] nvdimm: guarantee persistence of QEMU writes

From: junyan . he
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH V6 0/7] nvdimm: guarantee persistence of QEMU writes to persistent memory
Date: Fri, 1 Jun 2018 16:10:22 +0800

From: Junyan He <address@hidden>

QEMU writes to vNVDIMM backends in the vNVDIMM label emulation and
live migration. If the backend is on the persistent memory, QEMU needs
to take proper operations to ensure its writes persistent on the
persistent memory. Otherwise, a host power failure may result in the
loss the guest data on the persistent memory.

This v3 patch series is based on Marcel's patch "mem: add share
parameter to memory-backend-ram" [1] because of the changes in patch 1.

Changes in v6:
* (Patch 1) Expose all ram block flags rather than redefine the flags.
* (Patch 4) Use pkg-config rather the hard check when configure. 
* (Patch 7) Sync and flush all the pmem data when migration completes,
rather than sync pages one by one in previous version.

Changes in v5:
* (Patch 9) Add post copy check and output some messages for nvdimm.

Changes in v4:
* (Patch 2) Fix compilation errors found by patchew.

Changes in v3:
* (Patch 5) Add a is_pmem flag to ram_handle_compressed() and handle
PMEM writes in it, so we don't need the _common function.
* (Patch 6) Expose qemu_get_buffer_common so we can remove the
unnecessary qemu_get_buffer_to_pmem wrapper.
* (Patch 8) Add a is_pmem flag to xbzrle_decode_buffer() and handle
PMEM writes in it, so we can remove the unnecessary
xbzrle_decode_buffer_{common, to_pmem}.
* Move libpmem stubs to stubs/pmem.c and fix the compilation failures
of test-{xbzrle,vmstate}.c.

Changes in v2:
* (Patch 1) Use a flags parameter in file ram allocation functions.
* (Patch 2) Add a new option 'pmem' to hostmem-file.
* (Patch 3) Use libpmem to operate on the persistent memory, rather
than re-implementing those operations in QEMU.
* (Patch 5-8) Consider the write persistence in the migration path.

[1/7] memory, exec: Expose all memory block related flags.
[6/7] migration/ram: Add check and info message to nvdimm post copy.
[7/7] migration/ram: ensure write persistence on loading all date to PMEM.

[5/7] mem/nvdimm: ensure write persistence to PMEM in label emulation

Haozhong & Junyan:
[2/7] memory, exec: switch file ram allocation functions to 'flags' parameters
[3/7] hostmem-file: add the 'pmem' option
[4/7] configure: add libpmem support
