[libvirt] [PATCH 00/18] Enhance virpcimock and test VFIO instead of KVM

Posted by Michal Privoznik 3 days ago
Kernel structure looks slightly different than what virpcimock creates.
This did not use to be a problem, because we are testing KVM device
assignment even though majority of systems we run on (if not all of
them) use VFIO assignment.

In order to switch our test suite (mainly virhostdevtest and virpcitest)
to test VFIO assignment, the virpcimock must be fixed. Firstly, it needs
to create symlinks under /sys/kernel/iommu_groups/... directories (patch
13/18) so that virhostdev module can iterate over them. Secondly, it
needs to create 'driver_override' file (which exists since
kernel-3.16.0) so that the virtual environment the mock creates matches
real up to date systems (patch 03/18).

Funny thing is, that enhancing the mock uncovered a bug we had (fix is
in 15/18) and also one latent bug (14/18).


As usual, these patches can be found on my github too:

  https://github.com/zippy2/libvirt/tree/virpcimock

and just for the fun of it, here's the latest travis build of that
branch:

Posted by Daniel Henrique Barboza 3 days ago
I've run make check with each individual patch, and everything
seems fine in my environment.

For all patches:

Tested-by: Daniel Henrique Barboza <danielhb413@gmail.com>


I'll see if I can drop some code reviews later on.


Thanks,

That'd be great because we are lacking reviewers (just like other 
projects) and these are very specific.

Just dropped reviews in all of them. A few comments in a couple of patches
that you can amend before pushing if you think it's worth it (not worth
another spin, in my opinion).

I couldn't help but wonder: can't we just remove the KVM stub (pci-assign)
support from the code base entirely? QEMU dropped it in 2.11. The kernel
dropped it in 4.12 (mid of 2017). Not sure if there is any existing, running
guests relying on pci-assign these days that can't move to vfio-pci.

If there are still users for pci-assign, perhaps a deprecation notice is in
order (a warning when launching the VM?). Then users can't complain
that the support was removed and they were thrown under the bus.


(... I mean, they will still complain about it, but at least we warned 
about it)



Thanks,


DHB

That is the direction we will eventually go. I've discussed this couple
of times (and in fact I have patches ready) and it was always agreed
upon. But only yesterday I've merged a patch that fixes a bug in the way
we reset PCI devices for KVM assignment, which sparked a discussion:

  https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2019-August/msg00671.html

But as soon as we get green light from guys I will post patches.
