[Xen-devel] [PATCH] x86/libxl: choose a sane default for HAP

Posted by Roger Pau Monne 2 weeks ago
Current libxl code will always enable Hardware Assisted Paging (HAP),
expecting that the hypervisor will fallback to shadow if HAP is not
available. With the changes to the domain builder that's not the case
any longer, and the hypervisor will raise an error if HAP is not
available instead of silently falling back to shadow.

In order to keep the previous functionality report whether HAP is
available or not in XEN_SYSCTL_physinfo, so that the toolstack can
select a sane default if there's no explicit user selection of whether
HAP should be used.

Fixes: d0c0ba7d3de ('x86/hvm/domain: remove the 'hap_enabled' flag')

Would it really be much more involved than the change here to restore
silent defaulting to shadow?

I think this bit wants to be universal (i.e. "(x86)" dropped), and
be set unconditionally on Arm. Irrespective of the question regarding
an alternative solution I think it is quite sensible to expose
availability of HAP to the tools. In fact I think "xl info" should
show this alongside other properties.

But that would mean that a user having selected hap=1 on the config
file would get silently defaulted to shadow, which is wrong IMO.

I can indeed make this available to both x86 and ARM. AFAICT it's
always going to be true on ARM. I can expand this a bit so it's also
printed in `xl info` together with the rest of the virt_caps.

Thanks, Roger.

At the libxl layer, aren’t the options tristate?  I.e., this would be “hap”, “shadow”, or “not specified”?

The user needs to be able to specify “always use shadow”, “always use HAP”, or “use HAP if available, otherwise use shadow”.  At the moment, leaving it empty should be “use HAP if available, otherwise use shadow”; so “hap = 1” should fail if HAP is not available.

The "use HAP if available, otherwise use shadow" is currently only
possibly expressed by not setting the hap option in the config file.

> At the moment, leaving it empty should be “use HAP if available, otherwise use shadow”; so “hap = 1” should fail if HAP is not available.

Right, this is what this patch is trying to accomplish.

I have a v2 series which fills the capabilities field for ARM and also
reports the hap capability in `xl info`.

Thanks, Roger.

Right; I wasn't trying to contradict you so much as "weigh in" (and
basically agree with you).

Since you and Andrew agree, so be it. Personally I'd like it better
if "hap=1" didn't prevent a domain from starting on a HAP-incapable
host. I wouldn't mind a warning though.

Behaviour like that could be arranged in libxl, which now has all the
requisite pieces.

What I'm not happy with is xc_domain_create() asking for a HAP domain
and getting silently getting a shadow one.

We could, but I would object to doing so.

It is not sensible behaviour to have, because the only thing it does is
hide (mis)configuration issues.

I agree.  While terms like HVM and HAP may have come about in the x86
world, they are deliberately vendor and technology neutral.

ARM *should* be claim to be, and behave as, HVM-only HAP-only system,
per this nomenclature.

Is this going to work on ARM (where CDF_hap is required)? Because...

...this is x86-only code, and I don't see an equivalent hunk for ARM.

It should, libxl__arch_domain_create_info_setdefault for ARM sets hap
to true unconditionally.

Yes, that flag is x86 only ATM (like all other capability flags).

Thanks, Roger.
