[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v6 0/2] qmp: 'wakeup-suspend-support' in query-target
Posted by Daniel Henrique Barboza, 1 week ago
v6:
- rebased with current master after being buried for a few months
- previous version link:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-02/msg04882.html

v5:
- removed a paragraph in the recently added qemu_register_wakeup_notifier
comment that was added. That paragraph was adding too much in-depth
information about the current design of the system_wakeup, making it
harder to understand the whole point (suggested by Mike Roth).
- previous version link:
https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-01/msg00879.html 

v4:
- added a comment in 'qemu_register_wakeup_notifier' about the effects
of adding a wakeup notifier without proper suspend/wakeup support in the
logic of the new wakeup-suspend-support flag, as suggested by Mike Roth
- previous version link:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-01/msg00358.html

v3:
- added a "(since 2.12)" notation in the new flag, as suggested by
Eric Blake
- added a "backwards compatible" note in the commit msg
- previous version link:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-01/msg00093.html

v2:
- changed the approach based on v1 discussions: instead of a new API, add
the required flag in QMP query-target
- dropped patch 2 since query-target does not have an HMP counterpart
- previous version link:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2017-12/msg00889.html

[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v6 1/2] qmp: adding 'wakeup-suspend-support' in query-target
Posted by Daniel Henrique Barboza, 1 week ago
When issuing the qmp/hmp 'system_wakeup' command, what happens in a
nutshell is:

- qmp_system_wakeup_request set runstate to RUNNING, sets a wakeup_reason
and notify the event
- in the main_loop, all vcpus are paused, a system reset is issued, all
subscribers of wakeup_notifiers receives a notification, vcpus are then
resumed and the wake up QAPI event is fired

Note that this procedure alone doesn't ensure that the guest will awake
from SUSPENDED state - the subscribers of the wake up event must take
action to resume the guest, otherwise the guest will simply reboot.

At this moment there are only two subscribers of the wake up event: one
in hw/acpi/core.c and another one in hw/i386/xen/xen-hvm.c. This means
that system_wakeup does not work as intended with other architectures.

However, only the presence of 'system_wakeup' is required for QGA to
support 'guest-suspend-ram' and 'guest-suspend-hybrid' at this moment.
This means that the user/management will expect to suspend the guest using
one of those suspend commands and then resume execution using system_wakeup,
regardless of the support offered in system_wakeup in the first place.

This patch adds a new flag called 'wakeup-suspend-support' in TargetInfo
that allows the caller to query if the guest supports wake up from
suspend via system_wakeup. It goes over the subscribers of the wake up
event and, if it's empty, it assumes that the guest does not support
wake up from suspend (and thus, pm-suspend itself).

This is the expected output of query-target when running a x86 guest:

{"execute" : "query-target"}
{"return": {"arch": "x86_64", "wakeup-suspend-support": true}}

This is the output when running a pseries guest:

{"execute" : "query-target"}
{"return": {"arch": "ppc64", "wakeup-suspend-support": false}}

Given that the TargetInfo structure is read-only, adding a new flag to
it is backwards compatible. There is no need to deprecate the old
TargetInfo format.

With this extra tool, management can avoid situations where a guest
that does not have proper suspend/wake capabilities ends up in
inconsistent state (e.g.
https://github.com/open-power-host-os/qemu/issues/31).

Does the documentation of system_wakeup need fixing?

   ##
   # @system_wakeup:
   #
   # Wakeup guest from suspend.  Does nothing in case the guest isn't suspended.
   #
   # Since:  1.1
   #
   # Returns:  nothing.
   #
   # Example:
   #
   # -> { "execute": "system_wakeup" }
   # <- { "return": {} }
   #
   ##
   { 'command': 'system_wakeup' }

I figure we better explain right here what the command does, both for
wakeup-suspend-support: false and true.

The assumption is a bit of a hack, but I don't have better ideas.
Thanks for commenting it clearly.  However, ...

... I'd recommend to rename qemu_wakeup_notifier_is_empty() to
qemu_wakeup_suspend_support(), because then the hack is a bit more
isolated.  With the current name, it spills into qmp_query_target(),
which doesn't have such a helpful comment.

Hmm, I've re-sent a patch that changes a bit the behavior of system_wakeup
yesterday. The command should now fail with an error if the VM isn't in
SUSPENDED state. However, I failed to update this documentation
in that patch.

What if I resend that system_wakeup patch with the updated documentation 
such
as:


    ##
    # @system_wakeup:
    #
    # Wakeup guest from suspend.  Throws an error in case the guest isn't suspended.
    #
    # Since:  1.1
    #
    # Returns:  nothing if succeed
    #


And then I believe we don't need to update this doc again - if the guest 
isn't suspended,
  system_wakeup will still fire up an error.

In fact, I could have added that patch in this series too since it kind 
of relates with these
changes as well. Let me know if you think it helps and I'll respin it 
together with this
series.

What about a guest that is suspended under a QEMU that isn't capable of
waking it?

Shouldn't system_wakeup's documentation point to query-target's
wakeup-suspend-support?

Respinning in a single series is the simplest way to ensure the patches
get committed in a sane order.  I'd appreciate that.

[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v6 2/2] qga: update guest-suspend-ram and guest-suspend-hybrid descriptions
Posted by Daniel Henrique Barboza, 1 week ago
This patch updates the descriptions of 'guest-suspend-ram' and
'guest-suspend-hybrid' to mention that both commands relies now
on the existence of 'system_wakeup' and also on the proper support
for wake up from suspend, retrieved by the 'wakeup-suspend-support'
attribute of the 'query-target' QMP command.

Isn't checking for presence of system_wakeup redundant?

When query-target tells us "system_wakeup works" by returning
wakeup-suspend-support: true, we surely have system_wakeup (or else
query-target would be lying to us).

When it returns wakeup-suspend-support: false, it doesn't matter whether
we have system_wakeup.

Unless I'm wrong, we can simplify this to something like

   # IMPORTANT: guest-suspend-ram requires working wakeup support in
   # QEMU.  You *must* check QMP command query-target returns
   # wakeup-suspend-support: true before issuing this command.

It is worth noticing that this API isn't checking for the existence of
system_wakeup. It is checking whether there are notifiers added in
the wakeup_notifiers QLIST.

However, I think we can simplify the text as you suggested because that
part seems outdated anyway. Is there any relevant scenario where
system_wakeup will not be present?

I doubt it: we have system_wakeup since 1.1, and we've even backported
it to RHEL-6.

But even if there *was* a relevant scenario involving a QEMU that
doesn't provide system_wakeup, that QEMU will also not provide member
wakeup-suspend-support, let alone tell us wakeup-suspend-support: true,
unless somebody set out to break things on purpose.  That somebody would
get to keep the pieces then.
