[PATCH v4 0/3] RISC-V: KVM: Guest Debug Support - Software Breakpoint Part

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This series implements the "KVM Guset Debug" feature on RISC-V. This is
an existing feature which is already supported by some other arches.
It allows us to debug a RISC-V KVM guest from GDB in host side.

As the first stage, the software breakpoints (ebreak instruction) is
implemented. HW breakpoints support will come later after a synthetically
consideration with the SBI debug trigger extension.

A selftest case was added in this series. Manual test was done on QEMU
RISC-V hypervisor emulator. (add '-s' to enable the gdbserver in QEMU)

This series is based on Linux 6.9-rc1 and also available at:

The matched QEMU is available at:

Changes from v3->v4:
- Some optimization on the testcase as per review comments.

Changes from v2->v3:
- Rebased on Linux 6.9-rc1.
- Use BIT() in the macro definition.
- set/clear the bit EXC_BREAKPOINT explicitly.
- change the testcase name to ebreak_test.
- test the scenario without GUEST_DEBUG. vm_install_exception_handler()
  is used thanks to Haibo's patch.

Changes from v1->v2:
- Rebased on Linux 6.8-rc6.
- Maintain a hedeleg in "struct kvm_vcpu_config" for each VCPU.
- Update the HEDELEG csr in kvm_arch_vcpu_load().

Changes from RFC->v1:
- Rebased on Linux 6.8-rc2.
- Merge PATCH1 and PATCH2 into one patch.
- kselftest case added.
