Subject: Question on guest enable msi fail when using GICv4/4.1
Date: Fri, 7 May 2021 13:57:04 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <3a2c66d6-6ca0-8478-d24b-61e8e3241b20@hisilicon.com> (raw)

[This letter comes from Nianyao Tang]


Using GICv4/4.1 and msi capability, guest vf driver requires 3 vectors and enable msi, will lead to
guest stuck. Qemu gets number of interrupts from Multiple Message Capable field set by guest. This
field is aligned to a power of 2(if a function requires 3 vectors, it initializes it to 2).
However, guest driver just sends 3 mapi-cmd to vits and 3 ite entries is recorded in host.
Vfio initializes msi interrupts using the number of interrupts 4 provide by qemu.
When it comes to the 4th msi without ite in vits, in irq_bypass_register_producer, producer
and consumer will __connect fail, due to find_ite fail, and do not resume guest.

Do we support this case, Guest function using msi interrupts number not aligned to a power of 2?
Or qemu should provide correct msi interrupts number?
