[Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v5 0/2] let archs decide for vCPU ids

User-agent: StGit/0.17.1-dirty

Architectures can freely choose vCPU ids as long as they stay below
KVM_MAX_VCPUS, which is the maximum number of vCPUS. This is a problem
for PowerPC where the ids have to be multiples of the number of threads
per core in the host: when the host is POWER8 with 8 threads per core,
we can only have KVM_MAX_VCPUS / 8 in the guest.

This series decouplates the vCPU id limit from the number of vCPUs.

The first patch is a cleanup I kept from v4.

The second patch adds KVM_MAX_VCPU_ID as suggested by Radim.


Greg Kurz (2):
      KVM: remove NULL return path for vcpu ids >= KVM_MAX_VCPUS
      kvm: introduce KVM_MAX_VCPU_ID
