[PATCH] Documentation: create/move s390x documentation


From: Cornelia Huck
Subject: [PATCH] Documentation: create/move s390x documentation
Date: Wed, 18 Mar 2020 11:39:40 +0100

Create a subdirectory for s390x under docs/system/ and move the
existing vfio-ap documentation there.

Create an initial document describing s390x system emulation.

Suggested-by: Peter Maydell <address@hidden>
Signed-off-by: Cornelia Huck <address@hidden>
---

Mostly an initial version so that Janosch can base his protected virt
documentation on something; there's room for more here :)

If this looks good, I'll queue it on my s390-next branch for 5.1.

+s390x System emulator
+---------------------
+
+QEMU can emulate z/Architecture (in particular, 64 bit) s390x systems
+via the ``qemu-system-s390x`` binary. Only one machine type,
+``s390-ccw-virtio``, is supported (with versioning for compatibility
+handling).
+
+When using KVM as accelerator, QEMU can emulate CPUs up to the generation
+of the host. When using the default cpu model with TCG as accelerator,
+QEMU will emulate a subset of z13 cpu features that should be enough to run
+distributions built for the z13.
+
+Device support
+==============
+
+QEMU will not emulate most of the traditional devices found under LPAR or
+z/VM; virtio devices (especially using virtio-ccw) make up the bulk of
+the available devices. Passthrough of host devices via vfio-pci, vfio-ccw,
+or vfio-ap is also available.
