Subject: [PATCH v5 0/5] vfio/pci: add denylist and disable qat
Date: Fri, 24 Jul 2020 11:55:55 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This patchset defines a denylist of devices in the vfio-pci module and adds
the current generation of Intel(R) QuickAssist devices to it as they are
not designed to run in an untrusted environment.

By default, if a device is in the denylist, the probe of vfio-pci fails.
If a user wants to use a device in the denylist, he needs to disable the
full denylist providing the option disable_denylist=1 at the load of
vfio-pci or specifying that parameter in a config file in /etc/modprobe.d.

This series also moves the device ids definitions present in the qat driver
to linux/pci_ids.h since they will be shared between the vfio-pci and the qat
drivers and replaces the custom ADF_SYSTEM_DEVICE macro with PCI_VDEVICE.

The series is applicable to Herbert's tree. Patches 1 to 3 apply also to
Alex's tree (next). Patches 4 and 5 are optional and can be applied at a later

   Patches #1, #2 and #3: capitalized first character after column to comply to
   subject line convention
   Patch #3: Capitalized QAT acronym and added link and doc number for document
   "Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) Software for Linux"
