Subject: [PATCH v2] hw/riscv: virt: bugfix the memory-backend-file command is invalid
Date: Tue, 12 Oct 2021 09:45:01 +0800

From: Mingwang Li <limingwang@huawei.com>

When I start the VM with the following command:
$ ./qemu-system-riscv64 -M virt,accel=kvm -m 4096M -cpu host -nographic \
    -name guest=riscv-guset \
    -smp 2 \
    -bios none \
    -kernel ./Image \
    -drive file=./guest.img,format=raw,id=hd0 \
    -device virtio-blk-device,drive=hd0 \
    -append "root=/dev/vda rw console=ttyS0 earlycon=sbi" \
memory-backend-file,id=mem,size=4096M,mem-path=/dev/hugepages,share=on \
    -numa node,memdev=mem -mem-prealloc \
    -chardev socket,id=char0,path=/mnt/vhost-net0 \
    -netdev type=vhost-user,id=mynet1,chardev=char0,vhostforce \

Then, QEMU displays the following error information:
qemu-system-riscv64: Failed initializing vhost-user memory map, consider using 
-object memory-backend-file share=on
qemu-system-riscv64: vhost_set_mem_table failed: Interrupted system call (4)
qemu-system-riscv64: unable to start vhost net: 4: falling back on userspace 

Note that, before starting the kvm-acceled QEMU VM, following
temporarily unaccepted QEMU patches should be used:

This error was made bacause default main_mem is used to be registered
as the system memory, other memory cannot be initialized. Therefore,
the system memory should be initialized to the machine->ram, which
consists of the default main_mem and other possible memory required
by applications, such as shared hugepage memory in DPDK.
Also, the mc->defaul_ram_id should be set to the default main_mem,
such as "riscv_virt_board.ram" for the virt machine.
