[qemu-s390x] [PATCH 00/15] s390: vfio-ccw dasd ipl support

From: Jason J. Herne
Subject: [qemu-s390x] [PATCH 00/15] s390: vfio-ccw dasd ipl support
Date: Wed, 12 Dec 2018 09:11:03 -0500

This is to support booting from vfio-ccw dasd devices. We basically implement
the real hardware ipl procedure. This allows for booting Linux guests on
vfio-ccw devices.

vfio-ccw's channel program prefetch algorithm complicates ipl because most ipl
channel programs dynamically modify themselves. Details on the ipl process and
how we worked around this issue can be found in docs/devel/s390-dasd-ipl.txt.

NOTE: It has been a while, but I've finally chased down my infamous "reset bug".
On subsystem reset (I see this right after host ipl) we sometimes end up getting
an unexpected unit check status from a dasd device. This causes the first start
subchannel instruction to fail due to the pending unit check status. My solution
to this problem, as advised by the kernel folks, is to simply retry my ssch
instructions before declaring failure when unexpected unit checks happen. In the
event of a persistent error, after two retries we'll give up and print some
useful error info for the user.


rfc -> v1
- Retry start subchannel operations on unexpected unit check status
- Print more complete state information on i/o error
- Fixed asm constraints (Q -> QS)
- Align lowcore to 8k boundary
- Initialize next_cpa in run_dynamic_ccw_program to avoid compiler warning
- Cleanup: Rework handling of i/o interrupts in assembler
- Fix netboot image (include cio.o in make file)
- Misc cleanups

Jason J. Herne (15):
