[PATCH v3 0/6] LoongArch: Add pv ipi support on LoongArch VM

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


This patchset adds pv ipi support for VM. On physical machine, ipi HW
uses IOCSR registers, however there is trap into hypervisor when vcpu
accesses IOCSR registers if system is in VM mode. SWI is a interrupt
mechanism like SGI on ARM, software can send interrupt to CPU, only that
on LoongArch SWI can only be sent to local CPU now. So SWI can not used
for IPI on real HW system, however it can be used on VM when combined with
hypercall method. This patch uses SWI interrupt for IPI mechanism, SWI
injection uses hypercall method. And there is one trap with IPI sending,
however with SWI interrupt handler there is no trap.

Here is the microbenchmarck data with perf bench futex wake case on 3C5000
single-way machine, there are 16 cpus on 3C5000 single-way machine, VM
has 16 vcpus also. The benchmark data is ms time unit to wakeup 16 threads,
the performance is higher if data is smaller.

Change in V3:
  1. Add 128 vcpu ipi multicast support like x86
  2. Change cpucfg base address from 0x10000000 to 0x40000000 which is
used to dectect hypervisor type, in order to avoid confliction with future
hw usage
  3. Adjust patch order in this patchset, move patch 
Refine-ipi-ops-on-LoongArch-platform to the first one.

Change in V2:
  1. Add hw cpuid map support since ipi routing uses hw cpuid
  2. Refine changelog description
  3. Add hypercall statistic support for vcpu
  4. Set percpu pv ipi message buffer aligned with cacheline
  5. Refine pv ipi send logic, do not send ipi message with if there is
pending ipi message.
