[PATCH for-6.1 v3 0/1] machine: Disallow specifying topology parameters

From: Yanan Wang
Subject: [PATCH for-6.1 v3 0/1] machine: Disallow specifying topology parameters as zero
Date: Fri, 23 Jul 2021 10:00:01 +0800

In the SMP configuration, we should either specify a topology
parameter with a reasonable value (equal to or greater than 1)
or just leave it omitted and QEMU will calculate its value.
Configurations which explicitly specify the topology parameters
as zero like "sockets=0" are meaningless, so disallow them.

However; the commit 1e63fe685804d
(machine: pass QAPI struct to mc->smp_parse) has documented that
'0' has the same semantics as omitting a parameter in the qapi
comment for SMPConfiguration. So this patch fixes the doc and
also adds the corresponding sanity check in the smp parsers.

This patch originly comes form [1], and it was suggested that
this patch fixing the doc should be sent for 6.1 to avoid a
deprecation process in the future.
