[PATCH v3 0/5] gitlab-ci: Add accelerator-specific Linux jobs

From: Philippe Mathieu-Daudé
Subject: [PATCH v3 0/5] gitlab-ci: Add accelerator-specific Linux jobs
Date: Mon, 7 Dec 2020 14:14:58 +0100

Since v2:
- Fixed ARM Xen job
- Renamed jobs with -$accel trailer (Thomas)

Since v1:
- Documented cross_accel_build_job template (Claudio)
- Only add new job for s390x (Thomas)
- Do not add entry to MAINTAINERS (Daniel)
- Document 'build-tcg-disabled' job is X86 + KVM
- Drop the patches with negative review feedbacks


I was custom to use Travis-CI for testing KVM builds on s390x/ppc
with the Travis-CI jobs.

During October Travis-CI became unusable for me (extremely slow,
see [1]). Then my free Travis account got updated to the new
"10K credit minutes allotment" [2] which I burned without reading
the notification email in time (I'd burn them eventually anyway).

Today Travis-CI is pointless to me. While I could pay to run my
QEMU jobs, I don't think it is fair for an Open Source project to
ask its forks to pay for a service.

As we want forks to run some CI before contributing patches, and
we have cross-build Docker images available for Linux hosts, I
added some cross KVM/Xen build jobs to Gitlab-CI.

Cross-building doesn't have the same coverage as native building,
as we can not run the tests. But this is still useful to get link

Resulting pipeline:

Philippe Mathieu-Daudé (5):
  gitlab-ci: Document 'build-tcg-disabled' is a KVM X86 job
  gitlab-ci: Replace YAML anchors by extends (cross_system_build_job)
  gitlab-ci: Introduce 'cross_accel_build_job' template
  gitlab-ci: Add KVM s390x cross-build jobs
  gitlab-ci: Add Xen cross-build jobs
