[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v6 0/4] ARM: add query-gic-capabilities SMP command

From: Peter Xu
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v6 0/4] ARM: add query-gic-capabilities SMP command
Date: Wed, 23 Mar 2016 13:32:29 +0800

v6 changes:
- patch 1 (squashed into patch 2)
  - explain more about the following in commit message: why we need
    this command, and what does the entries mean [Markus]
  - explain what GIC is [Eric]
  - squash this patch into patch 2 [Eric]
- patch 2 (new patch 1)
  - fix "does not implement" english error [Eric]
  - remove useless headers in target-arm/monitor.c [Markus]
  - remove this command from whitelist [Markus, Eric]
  - return dict rather than array, with single key points to the
    original array results [Markus, Eric]
- patch 5 (new patch 4)
  - tiny change in implementation to suite the new interface.

v5 changes:
- patch 2: moved to target-arm/monitor.c (from target-arm/machine.c)
- patch 3: splitted into three patches: [all from Peter's comments]
  - patch 3 (new): leverage kvm_arm_create_scratch_host_vcpu(), tiny
    enhancement of old one to suite our need
  - patch 4: introduce kvm_support_device() in kvm-all.c
  - patch 5: do the implementation.

v4 changes:
- all: rename query-gic-capability to query-gic-capabilities [Andrea]
- patch 3: rename helper function to kvm_support_device, make it
  inline and lighter. [Drew]

v3 changes:
- patch 2: remove func declaration, add qmp header [Drew]
- patch 3: being able to detect KVM GIC capabilities even without
  kvm enabled [Andrea]: this is a little bit hacky, need some more
  review on this.

v2 changes:
- result layout change: use array and dict for the capability bits
  rather than a single array of strings [Andrea/Markus]
- spelling out what GIC is in doc [Eric]

This patch is to add ARM-specific command "query-gic-capability".

The new command can report which kind of GIC device the host/QEMU
support. The returned result is in the form of array.

Sample command and output:

{"execute": "query-gic-capability"}
{"return": [{"emulated": false, "version": 3, "kernel": false},
            {"emulated": true, "version": 2, "kernel": true}]}


Smoke tests on both x86 (emulated) and another moonshot ARM server.

Peter Xu (4):
  arm: qmp: add query-gic-capabilities interface
  arm: enhance kvm_arm_create_scratch_host_vcpu
  kvm: add kvm_support_device() helper function
  arm: implement query-gic-capabilities
