[Qemu-devel] [RFC] vhost-user: don't ignore CTRL_VLAN feature

Posted by Tiwei Bie 13 weeks ago
The VIRTIO_NET_F_CTRL_VLAN feature requires the support of
vhost-user backend. But it will be advertised to guest driver
as long as it's enabled by users in QEMU, while it's not
supported by vhost-user backend. This patch fixes this issue.

Fixes: 72018d1e1917 ("vhost-user: ignore qemu-only features")
Cc: qemu-stable@nongnu.org

Signed-off-by: Tiwei Bie <tiwei.bie@intel.com>
---
It's not clear in the spec that, whether vlan filtering is
also best-effort:

Fixes by making guest refuse to send vlan tags?
I agree it seems cleaner, but which guests does this actually help?

A change like that will break migration compatibility, will it not?
Maybe we need to tie it to a machine version somehow...

So what breaks if we declare it best effort for now?
And does it really help if we report that vlan filtering
is not supported to guests?

Fixes by not advertising this feature bit to guest driver
when it's not supported, and guest won't expect the device
to do vlan filtering then.

Yeah, that's a problem...

If it's best effort, then it won't violate the spec to
advertise this feature when it's not supported in backends.

OK so it's up to you. Want to propose a spec patch?
We already say mac filter is best effort ...

This probably need more thought. Consider in the future, we want to have 
filters that can steering packet based on its mac address to a specific 
queue. Then we can add e.g macvlan offloading support. Saying "best 
effort" might be wrong in that cases.

We can always add a feature bit. Spec should reflect the way
implementations behave now.

It should be a bug of the code, we should consider to implement ctrl 
command for vhost-user.

Yeah, we need to pass these information to backends if we
want to make it possible to support it in vhost-user.
