Subject: [PATCH v4 0/2] VMD MSI Remapping Bypass
Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2021 09:13:13 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The Intel Volume Management Device acts similar to a PCI-to-PCI bridge in that
it changes downstream devices' requester-ids to its own. As VMD supports PCIe
devices, it has its own MSI-X table and transmits child device MSI-X by
remapping child device MSI-X and handling like a demultiplexer.

Some newer VMD devices (Icelake Server) have an option to bypass the VMD MSI-X
remapping table. This allows for better performance scaling as the child device
MSI-X won't be limited by VMD's MSI-X count and IRQ handler.

Integrated wording suggestions; no functional changes

Trivial comment fixes
Added acks

Updated for 5.12-next
Moved IRQ allocation and remapping enable/disable to a more logical location
