[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/3] virtio-pci: iommu support

From: Michael S. Tsirkin
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 0/3] virtio-pci: iommu support
Date: Mon, 18 Apr 2016 12:58:08 +0300

This is an attempt to allow enabling IOMMU for DMA.
        - new feature bit IOMMU_PLATFORM which means
          host won't bypass IOMMU
        - virtio core uses DMA API if it sees IOMMU_PLATFORM
        - add quirk for vfio to disable device unless IOMMU_PLATFORM is set
          or the no-iommu mode is enabled
        - while I'm not sure how it will be used, it seems like a good idea to
          also have ability to distinguish between a legacy device and one
          where iommu is bypassed intentionally.  To this end, add another 
feature bit
          IOMMU_PASSTHROUGH. We don't acknowledge it if IOMMU_PLATFORM is set.

        - I'm not sure whether there are setups that mix IOMMU
          and no-IOMMU configs. If so, failing on probe might not
          be the right thing to do, should fail binding to IOMMU group instead.

Michael S. Tsirkin (3):
  virtio: add features for IOMMU control
  vfio: report group noiommu status
  vfio: add virtio pci quirk
