[Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v4 00/18] spapr: vfio: Enable Dynamic DMA windows (DDW

From: Alexey Kardashevskiy
Subject: [Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v4 00/18] spapr: vfio: Enable Dynamic DMA windows (DDW)
Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2015 20:27:12 +1100

At the moment sPAPR PHB supports only a single 32bit window
which is normally 1..2GB which is not enough for high performance devices.

PAPR spec enables creating an additional window(s) to support 64bit
DMA and bigger page sizes.

This patchset adds DDW support for pseries. The host kernel changes are
required, posted earlier today as:
[PATCH v3 00/24] powerpc/iommu/vfio: Enable Dynamic DMA windows

This was tested on POWER8 system which allows one additional DMA window
which is mapped at 0x800.0000.0000.0000 and supports 16MB pages.
Existing guests check for DDW capabilities in PHB's device tree and if it
is present, they request for an additional window and map entire guest RAM
using H_PUT_TCE/... hypercalls once at boot time and switch to direct DMA

TCE tables still may be big enough for guests backed with 64K pages but they
are reasonably small for guests backed by 16MB pages.

This does not contain PCI 64bit BAR support and VIO-TCE-bypass rework, these
are required for this to work but they have been posted separately today.

Please comment. Thanks!

* (!) reimplemented the whole thing
* machine reset and ddw-reset RTAS call both remove all TCE tables and
create the default one
* IOMMU group id is not needed to use VFIO PHB anymore, multiple groups
are supported on the same VFIO container and virtual PHB

* removed "reset" from API now
* reworked machine versions
* applied multiple comments
* includes David's machine QOM rework as this patchset adds a new machine type

* tested on emulated PHB
* removed "ddw" machine property, now it is PHB property
* disabled by default
* defined "pseries-2.2" machine which enables DDW by default
* fixed reset() and reference counting
