[PATCH v5 00/79] refactor main RAM allocation to use hostmem backend

From: Igor Mammedov
Subject: [PATCH v5 00/79] refactor main RAM allocation to use hostmem backend
Date: Mon, 17 Feb 2020 12:33:33 -0500

  - pick up new Reviewed-by-s
  - drop "ppc/prep: use memdev for RAM" since machine was removed
  - add patch "mips/mips_jazz: add max ram size check"
  - extend comment for "default_ram_id" to clarify that's setting it serves
    as optin flag for -m support. [03/79]
  - rebase "arm/raspi: use memdev for RAM" once more

  - pick up new Reviewed-by-s
  - Fix access to uninitialized pagesize/hpsize in
    "[PATCH REPOST v3 74/80] exec: cleanup  
  - Make explicitly provided memory-backend work by using string property 
    of link so it would be possible to delay access to the backend to the time
    when backends are initialized.
  - added new patches to make explicit backend work nice with -m and do sanity
    check on ram_size
      'vl.c: move -m parsing after memory backends has been processed'
      'vl.c: ensure that ram_size matches size of machine.memory-backend"
    all this ram_size business needs cleanup too, but that's out of the scope
    of this series.
  - include m68k/q800 board into conversion
  - drop patches that were merged through other trees

  - due to libvirt not being ready, postpone till 5.1
     * [PATCH v2 82/86] numa: forbid '-numa node,  mem' for 5.0 and newer 
machine types
     and depended
       [PATCH v2 86/86] numa: remove deprecated implicit RAM distribution  
between nodes
  - drop as not related "[PATCH v2 85/86] numa: make exit() usage consistent"
  - drop "[PATCH v2 76/86] post conversion default_ram_id cleanup"
    so that default memory-backedend won't be created for boards that do not 
    about -m. Which makes -m optin feature. We should decide  what do in  case
    board doesn't use -m (but that's out of scope of this series)
  - use object_register_sugar_prop() instead of hacking compat props directly
  - simplified/reworked aspeed patches
  - s/RAM_ADDR_FMT/size_to_str()/
  - rename 'ram-memdev' property to 'memory-backend'
  - minor fixes to numa-test
  - fixes for issues noticed during review of
       [PATCH v2 66/86] ppc/{ppc440_bamboo,sam460x}: drop RAM size fixup

  - fix compile errors on mingw32 host by introducing RAM_ADDR_UFMT [11/86]
  - replace "[PATCH 43/86] hppa: drop RAM size fixup" with alternative
    patches made by Philippe (which effectively do the same thing but other
    way around)
  - ppc440: fix crash and add suggested valid RAM size in error output.
    s/ppc4xx_sdram_adjust/ppc4xx_sdram_prep/ and simplify it by removing
    not necessary nested loop
  - rebase on current master due to new conflicts

Series removes ad hoc RAM allocation API (memory_region_allocate_system_memory)
and consolidates it around hostmem backend. It allows to
 * resolve conflicts between global -mem-prealloc and hostmem's "policy" option
   fixing premature allocation before binding policy is applied
 * simplify complicated memory allocation routines which had to deal with 2 ways
   to allocate RAM.
 * it allows to reuse hostmem backends of a choice for main RAM without adding
   extra CLI options to duplicate hostmem features.
   Recent case was -mem-shared, to enable vhost-user on targets that don't
   support hostmem backends [1] (ex: s390)
 * move RAM allocation from individual boards into generic machine code and
   provide them with prepared MemoryRegion.
 * clean up deprecated NUMA features which were tied to the old API (see 
    - "numa: remove deprecated -mem-path fallback to anonymous RAM"
    - (POSTPONED, waiting on libvirt side) "forbid '-numa node,mem' for 5.0 and 
newer machine types"
    - (POSTPONED) "numa: remove deprecated implicit RAM distribution between 

Conversion introduces a new machine.memory-backend property and wrapper code 
aliases global -mem-path and -mem-alloc into automatically created hostmem
backend properties (provided memory-backend was not set explicitly given by 
And then follows bulk of trivial patches that incrementally convert individual
boards to using machine.memory-backend provided MemoryRegion.

Board conversion typically involves:
 * providing MachineClass::default_ram_size and MachineClass::default_ram_id
   so generic code could create default backend if user didn't explicitly 
   memory-backend or -m options
 * dropping memory_region_allocate_system_memory() call
 * using convenience MachineState::ram MemoryRegion, which points to 
   allocated by ram-memdev
On top of that for some boards:
 * added missing ram_size checks (typically it were boards with fixed ram size)
 * ram_size fixups were replaced by checks and hard errors, forcing user to
   provide correct "-m" values instead of ignoring it and continuing running.

After all boards are converted the old API is removed and memory allocation
routines are cleaned up.
