[PATCH v2 0/3] s390x/pci: Accomodate vfio DMA limiting

From: Matthew Rosato
Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] s390x/pci: Accomodate vfio DMA limiting
Date: Mon, 14 Sep 2020 18:29:27 -0400

Kernel commit 492855939bdb added a limit to the number of outstanding DMA
requests for a type1 vfio container.  However, lazy unmapping in s390 can 
in fact cause quite a large number of outstanding DMA requests to build up
prior to being purged, potentially the entire guest DMA space.  This
results in unexpected 'VFIO_MAP_DMA failed: No space left on device'
conditions seen in QEMU.

This patchset adds support to qemu to retrieve the number of allowable DMA
requests via the VFIO_IOMMU_GET_INFO ioctl.  The patches are separated into
vfio hits which add support for reading in VFIO_IOMMU_GET_INFO capability
chains and getting the per-container dma_avail value, and s390 hits to 
track DMA usage on a per-container basis.

Associated kernel patch:

Changes from v2:
- Renamed references of dma_limit to dma_avail based on kernel change as
  the ioctl now reports the amount currently available vs the supposed
- Because the ioctl now provides a 'living value' vs the limit, it doesn't
  seem appropriate to put it in the VFIOConatiner structure without
  doing the dma_avail tracking there.  So patch 1 shrinks to vfio helper
  routines to find the capability and leaves vfio_connect_container alone. 
- Subsequently, in patch 2 s390-pci issues its own VFIO_IOMMU_GET_INFO to
  read the dma_avail value and use it.

Matthew Rosato (3):
  vfio: Find DMA available capability
  s390x/pci: Honor DMA limits set by vfio
  vfio: Create shared routine for scanning info capabilities
