[Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v6 2/2] kvm: introduce KVM_MAX_VCPU_ID

From: Greg Kurz
Subject: [Qemu-ppc] [PATCH v6 2/2] kvm: introduce KVM_MAX_VCPU_ID
Date: Mon, 09 May 2016 18:13:37 +0200
User-agent: StGit/0.17.1-dirty

The KVM_MAX_VCPUS define provides the maximum number of vCPUs per guest, and
also the upper limit for vCPU ids. This is okay for all archs except PowerPC
which can have higher ids, depending on the cpu/core/thread topology. In the
worst case (single threaded guest, host with 8 threads per core), it limits
the maximum number of vCPUS to KVM_MAX_VCPUS / 8.

This patch separates the vCPU numbering from the total number of vCPUs, with
the introduction of KVM_MAX_VCPU_ID, as the maximal valid value for vCPU ids
plus one.

The corresponding KVM_CAP_MAX_VCPU_ID allows userspace to validate vCPU ids
before passing them to KVM_CREATE_VCPU.

This patch only implements KVM_MAX_VCPU_ID with a specific value for PowerPC.
Other archs continue to return KVM_MAX_VCPUS instead.

v6: - provide cap in generic code (Cornelia)
    - change PowerPC limit to threads_per_subcore * KVM_MAX_VCORES (Radim)

 On powerpc using book3s_hv mode, the vcpus are mapped onto virtual
 threads in one or more virtual CPU cores.  (This is because the
