[PATCH V8 0/2] Virtio support for toolstack on Arm (Was "IOREQ feature (+ virtio-mmio) on Arm")
Posted by Oleksandr Tyshchenko 2 weeks, 6 days ago
From: Oleksandr Tyshchenko <oleksandr_tyshchenko@epam.com>

Hello all.

The purpose of this patch series is to add missing virtio-mmio bits to Xen toolstack on Arm.
The Virtio support for toolstack [1] was postponed as the main target was to upstream IOREQ/DM
support on Arm in the first place. Now, we already have IOREQ support in, so we can resume Virtio
enabling work. You can find previous discussions at [2].

Patch series [3] is based on recent "staging" branch
(fa6dc0879ffd3dffffaea2837953c7a8761a9ba0 page_alloc: assert IRQs are enabled in heap alloc/free)
and tested on Renesas Salvator-X board + H3 ES3.0 SoC (Arm64) with virtio-mmio based virtio-disk backend [4]
running in Dom0 (or Driver domain) and unmodified Linux Guest running on existing virtio-blk driver (frontend).
No issues were observed. Guest domain 'reboot/destroy' use-cases work properly.

Any feedback/help would be highly appreciated.
