[PATCH] vhost: Allow null msg.size on VHOST_IOTLB_INVALIDATE

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


Commit e2ae38cf3d91 ("vhost: fix hung thread due to erroneous iotlb
entries") Forbade vhost iotlb msg with null size to prevent entries
with size = start = 0 and last = ULONG_MAX to end up in the iotlb.

Then commit 95932ab2ea07 ("vhost: allow batching hint without size")
only applied the check for VHOST_IOTLB_UPDATE and VHOST_IOTLB_INVALIDATE
message types to fix a regression observed with batching hit.

Still, the introduction of that check introduced a regression for
some users attempting to invalidate the whole ULONG_MAX range by
setting the size to 0. This is the case with qemu/smmuv3/vhost
integration which does not work anymore. It Looks safe to partially
revert the original commit and allow VHOST_IOTLB_INVALIDATE messages
with null size. vhost_iotlb_del_range() will compute a correct end
iova. Same for vhost_vdpa_iotlb_unmap().
