[RFC PATCH v2 0/5] virtio: early detect 'modern' virtio

From: Halil Pasic
Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 0/5] virtio: early detect 'modern' virtio
Date: Fri, 12 Nov 2021 15:57:44 +0100

This is an early RFC for a transport specific early detecton of
modern virtio, which is most relevant for transitional devices on big
endian platforms, when drivers access the config space before

The most important part that is missing here is fixing all the problems
that arise in the situation described in the previous paragraph, when
the config is managed by a vhost device (and thus outside QEMU. This
series tackles this problem only for virtio_net+vhost as an example. If
this approach is deemed good, we need to do something very similar for
every single affected device.

This series was only lightly tested. The vhost stuff is entirely
untested, unfortunately I don't have a working setup where this
handling would be needed (because the config space is handled in the
device). DPDK is not supported on s390x so at the moment I can't test
DPDK based setups. 

v1 -> v2:

* add callback
* tweak feature manipulation
* add generic handling for vhost that needs to be called by devices
* add handling for virtio

Halil Pasic (5):
  virtio: introduce virtio_force_modern()
  virtio-ccw: use virtio_force_modern()
  virtio-pci: use virtio_force_modern()
  vhost: push features to backend on force_modern
  virtio-net: handle force_modern for vhost
