[Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/2] Add live migration support in the PVRDMA devic

From: Sukrit Bhatnagar
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/2] Add live migration support in the PVRDMA device
Date: Sat, 6 Jul 2019 09:39:38 +0530

Changes in v2:

* Modify load_dsr() such that dsr mapping is not performed if dsr value
  is non-NULL. Also move free_dsr() out of load_dsr() and call it right
  before if needed. These two changes will allow us to call load_dsr()
  even when we have already done dsr mapping and would like to go on
  with the rest of mappings.

* Use VMStateDescription instead of SaveVMHandlers to describe migration
  state. Also add fields for parent PCI object and MSIX.

* Use a temporary structure (struct PVRDMAMigTmp) to hold some fields
  during migration. These fields, such as cmd_slot_dma and resp_slot_dma
  inside dsr, do not fit into VMSTATE macros as their container
  (dsr_info->dsr) will not be ready until it is mapped on the dest.

* Perform mappings to CQ and event notification rings after the state is
  loaded. This is an extension to the mappings performed in v1;
  following the flow of load_dsr(). All the mappings are succesfully
  done on the dest on state load.

Link(s) to v1:

Things working now (were not working at the time of v1):

* vmxnet3 is migrating successfully. The issue was in the migration of
  its PCI configuration space, and is solved by the patch Marcel had sent:

* There is no problem due to BounceBuffers which were failing the dma mapping
  calls in state load logic earlier. Not sure exactly how it went away. I am
  guessing that adding the PCI and MSIX state to migration solved the issue.

What is still needed:

* A workaround to get libvirt to support same-host migration. Since
  the problems faced in v1 (mentioned above) are out of the way, we
  can move further, and in doing so, we will need this.
