[PATCH vhost 00/14] virtio remove dma info for premapped mode

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


As discussed:

If the virtio is premapped mode, the driver should manage the dma info by self.
So the virtio core should not store the dma info.
So we can release the memory used to store the dma info.

But if the desc_extra has not dma info, we face a new question,
it is hard to get the dma info of the desc with indirect flag.
For split mode, that is easy from desc, but for the packed mode,
it is hard to get the dma info from the desc. And for hardening
the dma unmap is saft, we should store the dma info of indirect

So I introduce the "structure the indirect desc table" to
allocate space to store dma info with the desc table.

On the other side, we mix the descs with indirect flag
with other descs together to share the unmap api. That
is complex. I found if we we distinguish the descs with
VRING_DESC_F_INDIRECT before unmap, thing will be clearer.

Because of the dma array is allocated in the find_vqs(),
so I introduce a new parameter to find_vqs().

Please review.
