Following the issues reported by Jerin and the discussion that emerged
from it, here are fixes to restore and document the behavior of the EAL
and the pci bus driver.

I pondered all the arguments and tried to have the less changes possible.
I can't find a need for a flag to just announce support of physical
addresses from the pmd point of view.
So it ended up with something really close to what Jerin had suggested.

But the problem is that this is still unfinished wrt the documentation.
I will be offline for 10 days and we need this to move forward, so sending
anyway.

TODO on the second patch:
- split it (?),
- add documentation on PCI bus considerations,
- add more rationals on RTE_IOVA_DC in the commitlog and the documentation,
- fix the remaining bugs (hopefully, none),

This reverts commit 0cb86518db57d35e0abc14d6703fad561a0310e2.

The pci bus now reports DC when faced with a device bound to an unknown
driver and, in such a case, the IOVA mode is selected against physical
address availability.

As a consequence, there is no reason for this special case for Mellanox
drivers.

Fixes: 703458e19c16 ("bus/pci: consider only usable devices for IOVA mode")

The incriminated commit broke the use of RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA which
was intended to mean "driver only supports VA" but had been understood
as "driver supports both PA and VA" by most net drivers and used to let
dpdk processes to run as non root (which do not have access to physical
addresses on recent kernels).

The check on physical addresses actually closed the gap for those
drivers. We don't need to mark them with RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA and this
flag can retain its intended meaning.
Document explicitly its meaning.

We can check that a driver requirement wrt to IOVA mode is fulfilled
before trying to probe a device.

Finally, document the heuristic used to select the IOVA mode and hope
that we won't break it again.

+IOVA Mode Detection
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+IOVA Mode is selected by considering what the current usable Devices on the
+system requires and/or supports.
+
+Below is the 2-step heuristic for this choice.
+
+For the first step, EAL asks each bus its requirement in terms of IOVA mode
+and decides on a preferred IOVA mode.
+
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_PA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_PA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_VA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_VA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_DC, no bus expressed a preferrence, then the
+  preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC,
+- if the buses disagree (at least one wants RTE_IOVA_PA and at least one wants
+  RTE_IOVA_VA), then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_DC (see below with the
+  check on Physical Addresses availability),
+
+The second step is checking if the preferred mode complies with the Physical
+Addresses availability since those are only available to root user in recent
+kernels.
+
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_PA but there is no access to Physical
+  Addresses, then EAL init will fail early, since later probing of the devices
+  would fail anyway,
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC then based on the Physical Addresses
+  availability, the preferred mode is adjusted to RTE_IOVA_PA or RTE_IOVA_VA.
+  In the case when the buses had disagreed on the IOVA Mode at the first step,
+  part of the buses won't work because of this decision.

In general, the theme is OK with this patch. It will fix the existing problems.
I need to spend more time on reviewing the code and documentation.

So, we always assume that all devices support both IOVA as PA and IOVA 
as VA by default. Well, as long as it's understood and documented :)

Is there any specific reason why we always prefer PA if physical 
addresses are available? Since we're already assuming that all devices 
support PA and VA anyway, what's the harm in enabling VA by default?

I seem to recall there were some concerns around SPDK and PA address 
availability - doesn't that mean that the assumption regarding PA and VA 
mode always being supported doesn't actually hold in practice?

By the way, the reason i'm harping away on IOVA as VA being the default 
is because having IOVA as PA is not a free (as in beer) choice - we 
sacrifice some usability by doing that. Right now, by default, mempool 
will ask for IOVA-contiguous memory first, and this is slow in IOVA as 
PA mode - meaning, e.g. testpmd startup time is greatly increased for 
smaller page sizes because of IOVA as PA mode is the default in DPDK.

I would also like to steer people away from using real physical 
addresses because doing so while requiring lots of IOVA contiguous 
memory also requires legacy mem mode, which i would rather people not 
use and grow dependent on, and would like to remove it at some point as 
it adds a lot of complexity for a corner case.

So, picking address mode is not *just* about whether the device supports 
them - it has usability implications as well.

Yes

If PA is available, it means we are running as root.
We can assume that using root is a choice, probably related
to a preference for PA.

That's why we should better encourage to not run as root.
We need more documentation about how to run as normal user.

If we consider running as root an exception, then it makes
sense to pick address mode which fits this exception (PA).

When you put it that way, that does indeed make sense. Typically though, 
developers tend to run as root. I shall hereby stop doing so :)

# Even if we are running as root, Why to choose PA in case of DC?
ie. Following logic is not need
                if (iova_mode == RTE_IOVA_DC) {
                        iova_mode = phys_addrs ? RTE_IOVA_PA : RTE_IOVA_VA;
                        RTE_LOG(DEBUG, EAL,
                                "Buses did not request a specific IOVA mode, using '%s' based on physical addresses availability.\n",
                                phys_addrs ? "PA" : "VA");
                }
# When DPDK running on guest, Anyway it can not access the real PA, It will be IPA.
So I don't understand logic behind choose PA when DC. To me, it make sense to choose PA when DC.
# To align with RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_MAPPING flag and reflect it "need" rather
than support, I think, flag can be changed to RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA

Other than above points,
Reviewed this patch and tested on octeontx2, It looks good to me.

Why running as root if using VA anyway?
We can assume the user knows what he is doing, so it is a user choice.
We want to allow the user choosing, right?

What is IPA? Isn't it a beer?

You probably mean "choose VA".

I think the most important is to have a good documentation of this flag
(it was not done properly when Cavium introduced it initially).
If you want to rename the flag, you can do it in a separate patch.
If renaming, I really would like to get an answer to an old question:
Why IO adress is called IOVA? The name "IOVA_AS_VA" looks strange.
For reference, one description of addressing:
https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/iommu/2018-May/027686.html

About the naming, do you remember how I insisted to have a correct naming
of all related stuff in DPDK? It was hard to get it accepted,
the discussion was not nice and I stopped insisting to get all details fine
because I just got bored. It was a really bad experience.
You can ask why I remind this now? Because we must take care of all
details, make sure our messages are well understood, and be cooperative.

The user can override iova=pa/va as eal argument if user needs to run a specific mode.
Running as root for various other reason(just be lazy) etc. it is not or it should not
be connected to set the mode as PA.

There may a beer with that name. In this context, it is "Intermediate physical address"

IOVA = IO virtual address
Since IOVA can be PA or VA, the name IOVA_AS_VA as chosen

I agree.
To me that bad experience was due to mostly not having enough technical comments

No disagreement.
If we see the history the meaning got changed/updated in this commit
By adding intel drivers to it. I would nt say  it is big ideal, It just C code,
It can be changed based on the need. I think, what really import is,
maintain the the feature and commitment towards fixing any issue.

    drivers/net: enable IOVA mode for Intel PMDs

    If we want to enable IOVA mode, introduced by
    commit 93878cf0255e ("eal: introduce helper API for IOVA mode"),
    we need PMDs (for PCI devices) to expose this flag.

Good point.
I tend to prefer avoiding the use of EAL arguments because they may
be unavailable, depending on the application.

We could also call it "bus address" or "device address".
I think the word "IOVA" was enforced by Linux.
Anyway, my real issue when using "virtual" is that we don't really
know what we are talking about: is it an IOMMU translated address
on the device side or an MMU translated address on the application side?

I think we should better explain things.
One diagram which can help:

The doxygen meaning did not change from day one:
	/** Device driver supports IOVA as VA */
But the commit log meaning was:
	"Flag used when driver needs to operate in iova=va mode."
And the Intel commit log had a different understanding:
	"If we want to enable IOVA mode, [..] we need PMDs [..] to expose this flag."

Anyway we agree on the new meaning to be the original one the author
had in mind (i.e. "driver needs").

Yes. The default case suffice the requirement here.ie when it DC chosen from
bus layer select the VA. I don't see any point in overriding that.
It is a good default. Do you think any case where it need to be "changed"?
If not, let stick with VA i.e until unless if there no HARD requirement for PA.
i.e Stayaway from PA WHEN possible.

Actually in linux kernel, it creates the same mapping for device and CPU so 
user both can access the very same address. In this context, IOVA means,
Virtual address for device. The OS can do same mapping in CPU MMU tables as well.

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

Orginal V1 cover letter from David Marchand:

Following the issues reported by Jerin and the discussion that emerged
from it, here are fixes to restore and document the behavior of the EAL
and the pci bus driver.

I pondered all the arguments and tried to have the less changes
possible.
I can't find a need for a flag to just announce support of physical
addresses from the pmd point of view.
So it ended up with something really close to what Jerin had suggested.

But the problem is that this is still unfinished wrt the documentation.
I will be offline for 10 days and we need this to move forward, so
sending
anyway.


v2:

From: David Marchand <david.marchand@redhat.com>

This reverts commit 0cb86518db57d35e0abc14d6703fad561a0310e2.

The pci bus now reports DC when faced with a device bound to an unknown
driver and, in such a case, the IOVA mode is selected against physical
address availability.

As a consequence, there is no reason for this special case for Mellanox
drivers.

Fixes: 703458e19c16 ("bus/pci: consider only usable devices for IOVA mode")

From: David Marchand <david.marchand@redhat.com>

The incriminated commit broke the use of RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA which
was intended to mean "driver only supports VA" but had been understood
as "driver supports both PA and VA" by most net drivers and used to let
dpdk processes to run as non root (which do not have access to physical
addresses on recent kernels).

The check on physical addresses actually closed the gap for those
drivers. We don't need to mark them with RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA and this
flag can retain its intended meaning.
Document explicitly its meaning.

We can check that a driver requirement wrt to IOVA mode is fulfilled
before trying to probe a device.

Finally, document the heuristic used to select the IOVA mode and hope
that we won't break it again.

Fixes: 703458e19c16 ("bus/pci: consider only usable devices for IOVA mode")

+IOVA Mode Detection
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+IOVA Mode is selected by considering what the current usable Devices on the
+system requires and/or supports.
+
+Below is the 2-step heuristic for this choice.
+
+For the first step, EAL asks each bus its requirement in terms of IOVA mode
+and decides on a preferred IOVA mode.
+
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_PA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_PA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_VA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_VA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_DC, no bus expressed a preferrence, then the
+  preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC,
+- if the buses disagree (at least one wants RTE_IOVA_PA and at least one wants
+  RTE_IOVA_VA), then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_DC (see below with the
+  check on Physical Addresses availability),
+
+The second step is checking if the preferred mode complies with the Physical
+Addresses availability since those are only available to root user in recent
+kernels.
+
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_PA but there is no access to Physical
+  Addresses, then EAL init will fail early, since later probing of the devices
+  would fail anyway,
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC then based on the Physical Addresses
+  availability, the preferred mode is adjusted to RTE_IOVA_PA or RTE_IOVA_VA.
+  In the case when the buses had disagreed on the IOVA Mode at the first step,
+  part of the buses won't work because of this decision.

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

In order to align name with other PCI driver flag such as
RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_MAPPING and to reflect its purpose, Change
RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA flag name as RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA.

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

When bus layer selected the preferred mode as RTE_IOVA_DC then
select the IOVA mode as RTE_IOVA_VA.

The RTE_IOVA_VA selected as the default because,

1) All drivers work in RTE_IOVA_VA mode, irrespective of physical
address availability.

2) By default, the mempool, first asks for IOVA-contiguous memory
using RTE_MEMZONE_IOVA_CONTIG and this is slow in IOVA as PA mode
and it may affect the application boot time.

Tiny nitpick - i generally don't like personal appeals in log messages, 
so perhaps drop the "your"? I.e. "Depending on final decision by EAL, 
not all devices may be able to initialize."? Same applies to the other 
instance of this error message.

Is there anywhere we can document that any new driver must support both

I would also add a point about usability improvement for use-cases which 
require large amounts of IOVA-contiguous memory.

Not sure why new drivers need to support both PA and VA. Do you mean VA?
And not sure where to document this as well if need.

I will add in next version:
How about the following, Let me know if any change required.

#. It is easy to enable large amount of IOVA-contiguous memory use-cases with IOVA in VA mode.

We have a flaf that indicates that the driver needs IOVA as VA. Absence 
of said flag indicates that it supports both IOVA as VA and IOVA as PA. 
So, absent of this flag, any new driver must support both PA and VA, 
must it not?

OK. I will add the following as "note" after "IOVA Mode Detection" section.
I don’t any other place to put this info in the doc. If any change needed
then let me know.

.. note::

    If the device driver needs IOVA as VA and it cannot work with IOVA as PA
    then the driver must request the PCI bus layer using  ``RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA``
    requirement flag. Absence of this flag, dictates, the driver must support both IOVA as PA and VA modes.

Orginal V1 cover letter from David Marchand:

Following the issues reported by Jerin and the discussion that emerged
from it, here are fixes to restore and document the behavior of the EAL
and the pci bus driver.

I pondered all the arguments and tried to have the less changes
possible.
I can't find a need for a flag to just announce support of physical
addresses from the pmd point of view.
So it ended up with something really close to what Jerin had suggested.

But the problem is that this is still unfinished wrt the documentation.
I will be offline for 10 days and we need this to move forward, so
sending
anyway.


v3:
- Patch 2/4 - Remove personal appeals in log messages(Anatoly)
- Patch 4/4 - Added following documentation (Anatoly)
a) #. It is easy to enable large amount of IOVA-contiguous memory use-cases with IOVA in VA mode.
in the reasons for VA as default
b) As a note,
If the device driver needs IOVA as VA and it cannot work with IOVA
as PA then the driver must request the PCI bus layer using
``RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA`` requirement flag.
Absence of this flag, dictates, the driver must support both IOVA as PA and VA modes.

v2:
- Changed RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA flag name as RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA(patch 3/4)
- Changed IOVA mode as VA for default case(patch 4/4) with documentation
- Tested the patch series on octeontx2 platform

From: David Marchand <david.marchand@redhat.com>

This reverts commit 0cb86518db57d35e0abc14d6703fad561a0310e2.

The pci bus now reports DC when faced with a device bound to an unknown
driver and, in such a case, the IOVA mode is selected against physical
address availability.

As a consequence, there is no reason for this special case for Mellanox
drivers.

Fixes: 703458e19c16 ("bus/pci: consider only usable devices for IOVA mode")

From: David Marchand <david.marchand@redhat.com>

The incriminated commit broke the use of RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA which
was intended to mean "driver only supports VA" but had been understood
as "driver supports both PA and VA" by most net drivers and used to let
dpdk processes to run as non root (which do not have access to physical
addresses on recent kernels).

The check on physical addresses actually closed the gap for those
drivers. We don't need to mark them with RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA and this
flag can retain its intended meaning.
Document explicitly its meaning.

We can check that a driver requirement wrt to IOVA mode is fulfilled
before trying to probe a device.

Finally, document the heuristic used to select the IOVA mode and hope
that we won't break it again.

Fixes: 703458e19c16 ("bus/pci: consider only usable devices for IOVA mode")

+IOVA Mode Detection
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+IOVA Mode is selected by considering what the current usable Devices on the
+system requires and/or supports.
+
+Below is the 2-step heuristic for this choice.
+
+For the first step, EAL asks each bus its requirement in terms of IOVA mode
+and decides on a preferred IOVA mode.
+
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_PA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_PA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_VA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_VA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_DC, no bus expressed a preferrence, then the
+  preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC,
+- if the buses disagree (at least one wants RTE_IOVA_PA and at least one wants
+  RTE_IOVA_VA), then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_DC (see below with the
+  check on Physical Addresses availability),
+
+The second step is checking if the preferred mode complies with the Physical
+Addresses availability since those are only available to root user in recent
+kernels.
+
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_PA but there is no access to Physical
+  Addresses, then EAL init will fail early, since later probing of the devices
+  would fail anyway,
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC then based on the Physical Addresses
+  availability, the preferred mode is adjusted to RTE_IOVA_PA or RTE_IOVA_VA.
+  In the case when the buses had disagreed on the IOVA Mode at the first step,
+  part of the buses won't work because of this decision.

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

In order to align name with other PCI driver flag such as
RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_MAPPING and to reflect its purpose, Change
RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA flag name as RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA.

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

When bus layer selected the preferred mode as RTE_IOVA_DC then
select the IOVA mode as RTE_IOVA_VA.

The RTE_IOVA_VA selected as the default because,

1) All drivers work in RTE_IOVA_VA mode, irrespective of physical
address availability.

2) By default, the mempool, first asks for IOVA-contiguous memory
using RTE_MEMZONE_IOVA_CONTIG and this is slow in IOVA as PA mode
and it may affect the application boot time.

Many thanks to both of you (Jerin, Anatoly) for working on this while
I was away.
I have some minor comments on the newly added patches, I will send a

Following the issues reported by Jerin and the discussion that emerged
from it, here are fixes to restore and document the behavior of the EAL
and the pci bus driver.

I pondered all the arguments and tried to have the less changes
possible.
I can't find a need for a flag to just announce support of physical
addresses from the pmd point of view.
So it ended up with something really close to what Jerin had suggested.

But the problem is that this is still unfinished wrt the documentation.
I will be offline for 10 days and we need this to move forward, so
sending
anyway.

Changelog since v3:
- fixed typos in patch 2,
- updated patch 3 title,
- moved and reworded comments in the note section in patch 4,

Changelog since v2 (Jerin):
- Patch 2/4 - Remove personal appeals in log messages(Anatoly)
- Patch 4/4 - Added documentation (Anatoly)

Changelog since v1 (Jerin):
- Changed RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA flag name as RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA
  (patch 3/4)
- Changed IOVA mode as VA for default case(patch 4/4) with documentation
- Tested the patch series on octeontx2 platform

This reverts commit 0cb86518db57d35e0abc14d6703fad561a0310e2.

The PCI bus now reports DC when faced with a device bound to an unknown
driver and, in such a case, the IOVA mode is selected against physical
address availability.

As a consequence, there is no reason for this special case for Mellanox
drivers.

The incriminated commit broke the use of RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA which
was intended to mean "driver only supports VA" but had been understood
as "driver supports both PA and VA" by most net drivers and used to let
dpdk processes to run as non root (which do not have access to physical
addresses on recent kernels).

The check on physical addresses actually closed the gap for those
drivers. We don't need to mark them with RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA and this
flag can retain its intended meaning.
Document explicitly its meaning.

We can check that a driver requirement wrt to IOVA mode is fulfilled
before trying to probe a device.

Finally, document the heuristic used to select the IOVA mode and hope
that we won't break it again.

+IOVA Mode Detection
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+IOVA Mode is selected by considering what the current usable Devices on the
+system require and/or support.
+
+Below is the 2-step heuristic for this choice.
+
+For the first step, EAL asks each bus its requirement in terms of IOVA mode
+and decides on a preferred IOVA mode.
+
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_PA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_PA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_VA, then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_VA,
+- if all buses report RTE_IOVA_DC, no bus expressed a preferrence, then the
+  preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC,
+- if the buses disagree (at least one wants RTE_IOVA_PA and at least one wants
+  RTE_IOVA_VA), then the preferred IOVA mode is RTE_IOVA_DC (see below with the
+  check on Physical Addresses availability),
+
+The second step checks if the preferred mode complies with the Physical
+Addresses availability since those are only available to root user in recent
+kernels.
+
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_PA but there is no access to Physical
+  Addresses, then EAL init fails early, since later probing of the devices
+  would fail anyway,
+- if the preferred mode is RTE_IOVA_DC then based on the Physical Addresses
+  availability, the preferred mode is adjusted to RTE_IOVA_PA or RTE_IOVA_VA.
+  In the case when the buses had disagreed on the IOVA Mode at the first step,
+  part of the buses won't work because of this decision.

In order to align name with other PCI driver flag such as
RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_MAPPING and to reflect its purpose, change
RTE_PCI_DRV_IOVA_AS_VA flag name as RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA.

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

When bus layer reports the preferred mode as RTE_IOVA_DC then
select the RTE_IOVA_VA mode:

- All drivers work in RTE_IOVA_VA mode, irrespective of physical
address availability.

- By default, a mempool asks for IOVA-contiguous memory using
RTE_MEMZONE_IOVA_CONTIG. This is slow in RTE_IOVA_PA mode and it
may affect the application boot time.

This introduces a regression where uio-bound devies are attached
to a DPDK app at runtime.

When there are no devices attached at initialization, the only safe
default should be RTE_IOVA_PA. With RTE_IOVA_VA we just
won't be able to do any DMA to uio-bound PCI devices. 

Can we revert this patch?

Just to understand the requirements;
# Is this requirement for SPDK?
# Is brand new PCI device scanned and attached to DPDK at runtime?
# Any specific reason for using uio vs vfio?

If it is for SPDK, 
# How about introducing rte_eal_init_with_mode(enum rte_iova_mode)?
# How about adding dummy bus which returns RTE_IOVA_PA in the bus_get_iommus_class() in SPDK code base?

Jerin,

It came up in SPDK tests, but it's certainly nothing SPDK-specific, I can't
give you the steps but it should be reproducible even with testpmd.

The PCI device could have been simply hotplugged to the system after
DPDK app start. DPDK didn't know about it at initialization, so it picked
RTE_IOVA_VA and then would fail to attach any UIO-bound device
ever after:

EAL:   Expecting 'PA' IOVA mode but current mode is 'VA', not initializing
EAL: Driver cannot attach the device (0000:00:09.0)
EAL: Failed to attach device on primary process

UIO is commonly used on systems without IOMMU- including VMs.

There's already an --iova=mode option in DPDK that forces the iova mode.
I'm not concerned about configurability, but the regression in the
default behavior.

I can add workarounds to SPDK, sure, but that wouldn't be a very healthy
approach.

Stojaczyk,

There reason to choose VA incase if bus detects DC is following:

- All drivers are expected to work in RTE_IOVA_VA mode, irrespective of
      physical address availability.
- By default, the mempool, first asks for IOVA-contiguous memory using
      ``RTE_MEMZONE_IOVA_CONTIG``. This is slow in RTE_IOVA_PA mode and it may
      affect the application boot time.
- It is easy to enable large amount of IOVA-contiguous memory use-cases
      with IOVA in VA mode.

We have RTE_PCI_DRV_NEED_IOVA_AS_VA devices in DPDK, Which can work
Only on VA. If we default 'PA' incase of DC, then what do with hotplugging on those devices?

The latest machines has IOMMU. Which machines you are testing against,
Can we detect the machines without IOMMU and switch to PA?

Nothing like workaround, I am looking for the options for expressing
The requirements for PA?

Yes it is a regression on purpose.
We can also name it a behaviour change (more below).

As Jerin explained, there is no safe default.
There are two cases which cannot work together:
	1/ no IOMMU
	2/ driver supporting only IOMMU address (named IOVA_AS_VA)

In the past we were defaulting to physical addressing,
it was in favor of case 1.
Now we decided to switch to IOMMU address by default,
which is in favor of case 2.
As explained above by Jerin, this is considered as an improvement.
We should explain this change in the known issues of the release notes.

The only real fix would be to allow both addresses at the same time,
with separate memory allocators.

A machine without an IOMMU shouldn't have picked IOVA as VA in the first 
place. Perhaps this is something we could fix? I'm not sure how to 
detected that condition though, i don't think there's a mechanism to 
know that for sure. Some kernels create a "iommu" sysfs directories, but 
i'm not too sure if they're 1) there for older kernels we support, and 
2) always there.

On machines with IOMMU, VFIO should be the default, and we should 
discourage people from using igb_uio. Is there any reason why SPDK is 
not using VFIO by default?

On my machine, "/sys/devices/virtual/iommu" exists when IOMMU is 
enabled, but doesn't exist if it isn't ("/sys/class/iommu" exists in 
both cases, but is empty when IOMMU is disabled). Perhaps we could go 
off that?

Yes, good idea.
We need to check how these sysfs entries are managed,
and how old they are by looking at Linux code history.

Quick (and by no means thorough) Google reveals that IOMMU driver's 
sysfs-related code dates back as far as kernel version 3.17:

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v3.17.8/source/drivers/iommu/iommu-sysfs.c

I'm not a kernel code expert, but the code *looks* like it's creating an 
IOMMU-related entry in sysfs. So, i take it we can be reasonably sure of 
these entries' presence at least since v3.17 onwards? Do we support 
kernels which don't have this code?

I checked with a x86 and arm64 machine. I could not see "/sys/devices/virtual/iommu"
But looks like "/sys/class/iommu/" present when iommu present.

After a short chat with Ferruh, i think we have even better way to 
determine whether IOMMU is enabled - the /sys/kernel/iommu filesystem. 
Those are created whenever it is possible for VFIO to run, even if VFIO 
driver itself is not loaded. These have been there since kernel 3.6, so 
our minimum requirements are met with this approach, i believe.

I can see /sys/kernel/iommu_groups/ on IOMMU systems not  /sys/kernel/iommu

Sorry, yes, a typo. It's /sys/kernel/iommu_groups/.
