[PATCH vhost v2 00/16] vdpa: Add support for vq descriptor mappings

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


This patch series adds support for vq descriptor table mappings which
are used to improve vdpa live migration downtime. The improvement comes
from using smaller mappings which take less time to create and destroy
in hw.

The first part adds the vdpa core changes from Si-Wei [0].

The second part adds support in mlx5_vdpa:
- Refactor the mr code to be able to cleanly add descriptor mappings.
- Add hardware descriptor mr support.
- Properly update iotlb for cvq during ASID switch.

Changes in v2:

- The "vdpa/mlx5: Enable hw support for vq descriptor mapping" change
  was split off into two patches to avoid merge conflicts into the tree
  of Linus.

  The first patch contains only changes for mlx5_ifc.h. This must be
  applied into the mlx5-next tree [1] first. Once this patch is applied
  on mlx5-next, the change has to be pulled fom mlx5-next into the vhost
  tree and only then the remaining patches can be applied.
