[Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/7] KVM/ARM: Relax the max 123 vcpus limitation al

From: Eric Auger
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC v2 0/7] KVM/ARM: Relax the max 123 vcpus limitation along with KVM GICv3
Date: Sun, 13 May 2018 16:35:07 +0200

Currently the max number of VCPUs usable along with the KVM GICv3
device is limited to 123. The rationale is a single redistributor
region was supported and this latter was set to [0x80A0000, 0x9000000]
within the guest physical address space, surrounded with DIST and UART
MMIO regions.

[1] now allows to register several redistributor regions.
So this series overcomes the max 123 vcpu limitation by registering
a new redistributor region located just after the VIRT_MEM RAM region.
The total redistributor region capacity is set to 512 vcpus.

The max supported VCPUs in non accelerated mode is not modified.

Best Regards

[1] [PATCH v6 00/12] KVM: arm/arm64: Allow multiple GICv3 redistributor

This QEMU series can be found at:

v1 -> v2:
- Do not use KVM_MAX_VCPUS anymore
- In case the multiple redistributor region capability is not
  supported by the host kernel, the GICv3 device realize() fails
  with a hint for the end-user.
- use properties to set the redistributor region count
- sysbus_mmio_map is kept in virt and machine init done notifier
  mechanism is used with an address fixup addition.
- I have not yet extended the second redist region as Peter suggested.
  We can easily add another 3d region later on if requested. But
  if mandated, I will fix that in next release.
