Subject: RE: [RFC PATCH v4 00/11] Introduce vfio-pci-core subsystem
Date: Fri, 30 Jul 2021 07:53:00 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <01765c3bb55f48cf866dc3732a483eff@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210603160809.15845-1-mgurtovoy@nvidia.com>

Hi Max/ Yishai,

(Sorry I picked this thread instead of the [1] here as I don't have that
in my mailbox)

I see that an update to this series has been posted by Yishai [1] and it mentions
about a branch with all relevant patches,

" A preview of all the patches can be seen here:
https://github.com/jgunthorpe/linux/commits/mlx5_vfio_pci"

But sorry I couldn't find the patches in the branch above. Could you
please check and let me know.

Thanks,
Shameer

> Hi Alex, Cornelia, Jason and Co,
> 
> This series split the vfio_pci driver into 2 parts: pci drivers and a
> subsystem driver that will also be library of code. The main pci driver,
> vfio_pci.ko will be used as before and it will bind to the subsystem
> driver vfio_pci_core.ko to register to the VFIO subsystem.
> 
> This series is coming to solve some of the issues that were raised in
> the previous attempts for extending vfio-pci for vendor specific
> functionality:
> 1. https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/5/17/376 by Yan Zhao.
> 2. https://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg3903996.html by Longfang Liu
> 
> This subsystem framework will also ease on adding new vendor specific
> functionality to VFIO devices in the future by allowing another module
> to provide the pci_driver that can setup number of details before
> registering to VFIO subsystem (such as inject its own operations).
> 
> This series also extends the "driver_override" mechanism. We added a flag
> for pci drivers that will declare themselves as "driver_override" capable
> and only declared drivers can use this mechanism in the PCI subsystem.
> Other drivers will not be able to bind to devices that use "driver_override".
> Also, the PCI driver matching will always look for ID table and will never
> generate dummy "match_all" ID table in the PCI subsystem layer. In this
> way, we ensure deterministic behaviour with no races with the original
> pci drivers. In order to get the best match for "driver_override" drivers,
> one can create a userspace program (example can be found at
> https://github.com/maxgurtovoy/linux_tools/blob/main/vfio/bind_vfio_pci_dr
> iver.py)
> that find the 'best match' according to simple algorithm: "the driver
> with the fewest '*' matches wins."
> For example, the vfio-pci driver will match to any pci device. So it
> will have the maximal '*' matches (for all matching IDs: vendor, device,
> subvendor, ...).
> In case we are looking for a match to mlx5 based device, we'll have a
> match to vfio-pci.ko and mlx5-vfio-pci.ko. We'll prefer mlx5-vfio-pci.ko
> since it will have less '*' matches (probably vendor and device IDs will
> match). This will work in the future for NVMe/Virtio devices that can
> match according to a class code or other criteria.
> 
> The main goal of this series is to agree on the vfio_pci module split and the
> "driver_override" extensions. The follow-up version will include an extended
> mlx5_vfio_pci driver that will support VF suspend/resume as well.
> 
> This series applied cleanly on top of vfio reflck re-design (still haven't sent
> for review) and can be found at:
> https://github.com/Mellanox/NVMEoF-P2P/tree/vfio-v4-external.
