[Qemu-devel] [PULL 00/40] ivshmem: Fixes, cleanups, device model split

From: Markus Armbruster
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 00/40] ivshmem: Fixes, cleanups, device model split
Date: Fri, 18 Mar 2016 18:00:47 +0100

Major issues addressed by this series:

* The specification document is incomplete and vague.  Rewritten.

* When a peer goes away, and its ID gets reused for another one,
  interrupts don't work.

* When configured for interrupts, we receive shared memory from the
  server some time after realize().  This creates a (usually
  short-lived) "no shared memory, yet" state.  If the guest wins the
  race, it is exposed to this state (known issue, if you count burying
  in docs/specs/ as "known").  If migration wins the race, it fails or
  corrupts memory.

* Interrupts are unreliable in a (usually small) time window after the
  destination peer connects.  I believe fixing this will require
  changing the client/server protocol, so just document it for now.

* The device isn't capable to tell guest software whether it is
  configured for interrupts.  Fix that in a new, backwards-compatible
  revision of the guest ABI, and bump the PCI revision.  Deprecate the
  old revision.

* The device properties are a confusing mess and badly checked.
  Clean that up.

* Migration with interrupts relies on server behavior not guaranteed
  by the specification.  Tighten the specification.
