[PATCH] configure: define CONFIG_XEN when Xen is enabled

Posted by Paul Durrant 1 week ago
From: Paul Durrant <pdurrant@amazon.com>

The recent commit da278d58a092 "accel: Move Xen accelerator code under
accel/xen/" introduced a subtle semantic change, making xen_enabled() always
return false unless CONFIG_XEN is defined prior to inclusion of sysemu/xen.h,
which appears to be the normal case. This causes various use-cases of QEMU
with Xen to break.

This patch makes sure that CONFIG_XEN is defined if --enable-xen is passed
to configure.

Configure already defines CONFIG_XEN as a target-specific
config define in config-target.mak for the specific targets
that Xen will work for (ie if you build --enable-xen for
x86_64-softmmu and ppc64-softmmu then CONFIG_XEN is set for
the former and not the latter). This patch makes it a
build-wide config setting by putting it in config-host.mak.

We should figure out which of those two is correct and do
just one of them, not do both at the same time.

Since CONFIG_HAX, CONFIG_KVM and other accelerator-type
config defines are also per-target, I suspect that the
correct fix for this bug is not in configure but elsewhere.

This might come from this change:

-#include "hw/xen/xen.h"
+#include "sysemu/xen.h"

Before Xen was target-specific, now it is a target-agnostic accelerator.

However in include/qemu/osdep.h we have:

 30 #include "config-host.h"
 31 #ifdef NEED_CPU_H
 32 #include "config-target.h"
 33 #else
 34 #include "exec/poison.h"
 35 #endif

CONFIG_XEN is generated in "config-target.h" (target-specific),
so target-agnostic code always has it undefined.

I'd rather uninline xen_enabled() but I'm not sure this has perf
penalties. Paolo is that OK to uninline it?

Can we just follow the same working pattern we already have
for kvm_enabled() etc ?

I suppose no because it is in various hot paths:

exec.c:588:    if (xen_enabled() && memory_access_is_direct(mr, is_write)) {
exec.c:2243:        if (xen_enabled()) {
exec.c:2326:    if (xen_enabled()) {
exec.c:2478:    } else if (xen_enabled()) {
exec.c:2525:            } else if (xen_enabled()) {
exec.c:2576:    if (xen_enabled() && block->host == NULL) {
exec.c:2609:    if (xen_enabled() && block->host == NULL) {
exec.c:2657:    if (xen_enabled()) {
exec.c:3625:        if (xen_enabled()) {
exec.c:3717:    if (xen_enabled()) {
include/exec/ram_addr.h:295:    if (!mask && !xen_enabled()) {

This was the idea... I'll look at what I missed.

Apparently kvm_enabled() checks CONFIG_KVM_IS_POSSIBLE instead
of CONFIG_KVM, I suppose to bypass this limitation (from osdep.h):

 21 #ifdef NEED_CPU_H
 22 # ifdef CONFIG_KVM
 24 #  define CONFIG_KVM_IS_POSSIBLE
 25 # endif
 26 #else
 27 # define CONFIG_KVM_IS_POSSIBLE
 28 #endif
 29
 30 #ifdef CONFIG_KVM_IS_POSSIBLE
    ...

Paolo do you confirm this is the reason?

I'll prepare a similar patch.

Interesting. We don't have CONFIG_WHPX_IS_POSSIBLE,
CONFIG_HVF_IS_POSSIBLE, etc -- also bugs, or do we avoid
them by happening not to check whpx_enabled(), hvf_enabled(),
etc in obj-common-compiled source files?
