[PATCH v4 0/5] s390/vfio-ap: ap_config sysfs attribute for mdevctl automation

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


Mdevctl requires a way to atomically query and atomically update a vfio-ap
mdev's current state. This patch set creates the ap_config sysfs attribute.
This new attribute allows reading and writing an mdev's entire state in one go.
If a newly written state is invalid for any reason the entire state is rejected
and the target mdev remains unchanged.

  - Added volatile cast to fixup false positive gcc warning: 
  - Added new Reviewed-By tags
  - Optimization: hot unplug functions skip apcb update if nothing was actually
  - Hot unplug functions modified to zero bitmaps before use.
  - Rename ap_matrix_length_check to ap_matrix_overflow_check
  - Fixed omissions and errors in several commit messages and the docs.
  - Added Tested-by tags.
  - Rebased patched on top of latest master
  - Reworked code to fit changes introduced by f848cba767e59
      s390/vfio-ap: reset queues filtered from the guest's AP config
  - Moved docs changes to separate patch
