[Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v2 0/4] hw/ppc/spapr: Add "Processor Register Hypervis

From: Thomas Huth
Subject: [Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v2 0/4] hw/ppc/spapr: Add "Processor Register Hypervisor Resource Access" H-calls
Date: Thu, 11 Feb 2016 13:47:17 +0100

While we were recently debugging a problem with the H_SET_DABR
call [1], I noticed that some hypercalls from the chapter
("Processor Register Hypervisor Resource Access") from the LoPAPR
spec [2] are still missing in QEMU.
So here's are some patches that implement these hypercalls. Linux
apparently does not depend on these hypercalls yet (otherwise somebody
would have noticed this earlier), but the hypercalls are rather simple,
so I think the implementations are quite straight-forward and easy to

- Don't use set_spr() and set cpu->env.spr[] directly instead
- Completely reworked the H_PAGE_INIT patch to map the source
  and target pages for higher speed, and to be able to flush now
  the caches if requested.
