[PATCH v2] xen/x86/pvh: handle ACPI RSDT table in PVH Dom0 build
Posted by Stefano Stabellini 12 months ago
From: Stefano Stabellini <stefano.stabellini@amd.com>

Xen always generates a XSDT table even if the firmware provided a RSDT
table. Copy the RSDT header from the firmware table when the XSDT table
is missing.

Fixes: 1d74282c455f ('x86: setup PVHv2 Dom0 ACPI tables')
Suggested-by: Roger Pau Monné <roger.pau@citrix.com>

Note that this patch is sufficient to get Xen and Dom0 PVH to boot on
QEMU. It turns out that dom0-iommu=none is not needed because QEMU can
actually emulate an AMD IOMMU. I just needed to use the right command
line arguments. Without dom0-iommu=none, the error fixed by the second
patch in v1 doesn't manifest, so I dropped patch 2/2.

FYI this is the QEMU command line to use:

qemu-system-x86_64 \
    -machine q35 \
    -device amd-iommu \
    -m 2G -smp 2 \
    -monitor none -serial stdio \
    -nographic \
    -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=n0 \
    -netdev user,id=n0,tftp=binaries,bootfile=/pxelinux.0

This is pxelinux.0:

kernel xen console=com1 dom0=pvh dom0_mem=1G noreboot
module bzImage console=hvc0
module xen-rootfs.cpio.gz
boot

I'll work on adding a gitlab-ci test for this next.

To continue context some:

    {
        printk("Unable to map XSDT\n");
        rc = -EINVAL;
        goto out;
    }
    xsdt->header = *table;
    acpi_os_unmap_memory(table, sizeof(*table));

You're now pointing the guest's XSDT addr at a table that's really an
RSDT. After copying, I think you want to adjust the table signature
('R' -> 'X'). Luckily a revision of 1 is valid for both tables.
