[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/6] virtio: refactor host notifiers

From: Cornelia Huck
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/6] virtio: refactor host notifiers
Date: Thu, 17 Mar 2016 11:01:27 +0100

As discussed in the virtio-blk dataplane start/stop thread, the
various transports contain a lot of similar/identical boilerplate
code for setting up ioeventfds. This makes the code hard to follow.

Let's drag all of the common handling into the virtio-bus layer,
hopefully reducing both the boilerplate code and the number of

This RFC patchset is the result of hacking this up quickly, and I
was rather surprised that it did not die immediately on my s390
system (which is all I 'tested'). So be warned :)

Feedback about the approach and the interface would be good.

Cornelia Huck (6):
  virtio-bus: common ioeventfd infrastructure
  virtio-bus: have callers tolerate new host notifier api
  virtio-ccw: convert to ioeventfd callbacks
  virtio-pci: convert to ioeventfd callbacks
  virtio-mmio: convert to ioeventfd callbacks
  virtio-bus: remove old set_host_notifier callback
