2013-10-30kvm: Add VFIO deviceAlex Williamson
So far we've succeeded at making KVM and VFIO mostly unaware of each other, but areas are cropping up where a connection beyond eventfds and irqfds needs to be made. This patch introduces a KVM-VFIO device that is meant to be a gateway for such interaction. The user creates the device and can add and remove VFIO groups to it via file descriptors. When a group is added, KVM verifies the group is valid and gets a reference to it via the VFIO external user interface.

2013-04-26KVM: Introduce CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_IRQ_ROUTINGAlexander Graf
Quite a bit of code in KVM has been conditionalized on availability of IOAPIC emulation. However, most of it is generically applicable to platforms that don't have an IOPIC, but a different type of irq chip. Make code that only relies on IRQ routing, not an APIC itself, on CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_IRQ_ROUTING, so that we can reuse it later. Signed-off-by: Alexander Graf <agraf@suse.de> Acked-by: Michael S.

2012-04-24KVM: Introduce direct MSI message injection for in-kernel irqchipsJan Kiszka
Currently, MSI messages can only be injected to in-kernel irqchips by defining a corresponding IRQ route for each message. This is not only unhandy if the MSI messages are generated "on the fly" by user space, IRQ routes are a limited resource that user space has to manage carefully. By providing a direct injection path, we can both avoid using up limited resources and simplify the necessary steps for user land.

2011-01-12KVM: Halt vcpu if page it tries to access is swapped outGleb Natapov
If a guest accesses swapped out memory do not swap it in from vcpu thread context. Schedule work to do swapping and put vcpu into halted state instead. Interrupts will still be delivered to the guest and if interrupt will cause reschedule guest will continue to run another task. [avi: remove call to get_user_pages_noio(), nacked by Linus; this makes everything synchrnous again] Acked-by: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Gleb Natapov <gleb@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Marcelo Tosatti <mtosatti@redhat.com>

2009-09-10KVM: Break dependency between vcpu index in vcpus array and vcpu_id.Gleb Natapov
Archs are free to use vcpu_id as they see fit. For x86 it is used as vcpu's apic id. New ioctl is added to configure boot vcpu id that was assumed to be 0 till now. Signed-off-by: Gleb Natapov <gleb@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>
2009-09-10KVM: irqfdGregory Haskins
KVM provides a complete virtual system environment for guests, including support for injecting interrupts modeled after the real exception/interrupt facilities present on the native platform (such as the IDT on x86). Virtual interrupts can come from a variety of sources (emulated devices, pass-through devices, etc) but all must be injected to the guest via the KVM infrastructure. This patch adds a new mechanism to inject a specific interrupt to a guest using a decoupled eventfd mechnanism: Any legal signal on the irqfd (using eventfd semantics from either userspace or kernel) will translate into an injected interrupt in the guest at the next available interrupt window.
