[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/5] Introduce cpu die topology and enable CPUID.

From: Like Xu
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/5] Introduce cpu die topology and enable CPUID.1F for i386
Date: Tue, 21 May 2019 00:50:51 +0800

Multi-chip packaging technology allows integration of multi-cores in one die
and multi-dies in one single package, for example Intel CLX-AP or AMD EPYC.

This kind of integration can be enabled by high-performance, heterogeneous,
multi-dies interconnect technology, providing a more cost-effective manner. 
QEMU and guests may take advantages of multi-dies host for such as guest
placing or energy efficiency management...

This patch series extend the CPU topology to the socket/dies/core/thread model,
allowing the setting of dies number per one socket on -smp qemu command. For
i386, it upgrades APIC_IDs generation and reversion functions with a new exposed
leaf called CPUID.1F, which is a preferred superset to leaf 0BH. The CPUID.1F
spec is on https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-sdm, 3-190 Vol 2A.

E.g. we use -smp 4,dies=2,cores=2,threads=1 to run an MCP kvm-guest,
check raw cpuid data and the expected output from guest is following:
0x0000001f 0x00: eax=0x00000000 ebx=0x00000001 ecx=0x00000100 edx=0x00000002
0x0000001f 0x01: eax=0x00000001 ebx=0x00000002 ecx=0x00000201 edx=0x00000001
0x0000001f 0x02: eax=0x00000002 ebx=0x00000004 ecx=0x00000502 edx=0x00000003
0x0000001f 0x03: eax=0x00000000 ebx=0x00000000 ecx=0x00000003 edx=0x00000001



- Enable cpu die-level topolgy only for PCMachine and X86CPU
- Minimize cpuid.0.eax to the setting value actually used by guest
- Update cmd line -smps docs for die-level configurations
- Refactoring topo-bit tests for x86_apicid_from_cpu_idx() with nr_dies
- Based on "[PATCH v3 00/10] Refactor cpu topo into machine properties"
- Rebase to commit 2259637b95bef3116cc262459271de08e038cc66
