[Qemu-devel] [patch-for-4.2 PATCH v11 0/6] target-ppc/spapr: Add FWNMI support in QEMU for PowerKVM guests

Posted by Aravinda Prasad 3 days ago
This patch set adds support for FWNMI in PowerKVM guests.

System errors such as SLB multihit and memory errors
that cannot be corrected by hardware is passed on to
the kernel for handling by raising machine check
exception (an NMI). Upon such machine check exceptions,
if the address in error belongs to guest then KVM
invokes guests' 0x200 interrupt vector if the guest
is not FWNMI capable. For FWNMI capable guest
KVM passes the control to QEMU by exiting the guest.

This patch series adds functionality to QEMU to pass
on such machine check exceptions to the FWNMI capable
guest kernel by building an error log and invoking
the guest registered machine check handling routine.

The KVM changes are now part of the upstream kernel
(commit e20bbd3d). This series contain QEMU changes.

Change Log v11:
  - Moved FWNMI SPAPR cap defaults to 4.2 class option
  - Fixed issues with handling fwnmi KVM capability

Change Log v10:
  - Reshuffled the patch sequence + minor fixes

Change Log v9:
  - Fixed kvm cap and spapr cap issues

Change Log v8:
  - Added functionality to check FWNMI capability during
    VM migration
