This patch series enables IOMMU support for pseries Secure VMs.


Tested using QEMU command line option:

 "-device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi0,bus=pci.0,addr=0x4,
 	iommu_platform=on,disable-modern=off,disable-legacy=on"
 and 

 "-device virtio-blk-pci,scsi=off,bus=pci.0,
 	addr=0x5,drive=drive-virtio-disk0,id=virtio-disk0,
 	iommu_platform=on,disable-modern=off,disable-legacy=on"

Ram Pai (2):
  powerpc/pseries/iommu: Share the per-cpu TCE page with the hypervisor.
  powerpc/pseries/iommu: Use dma_iommu_ops for Secure VMs aswell.

The hypervisor needs to access the contents of the page holding the TCE
entries while setting up the TCE entries in the IOMMU's TCE table. For
SecureVMs, since this page is encrypted, the hypervisor cannot access
valid entries. Share the page with the hypervisor. This ensures that the
hypervisor sees the valid entries.

Worth mentioning that SLOF won't boot with such devices as SLOF does not know about iommu_platform=on.

I did see SLOF complaining, but that did not stop it from booting the guest.
My boot device was a virtio device, with iommu platform flag
enabled.

So I am not sure, under what conditions SLOF will fail to boot.   Any
idea?

The page is allocated and shared, and stays that way for the life of the
kernel. It is not explicitly unshared or freed.  It is however
implicitly unshared by the guest kernel, through a UV_UNSHARE_ALL_PAGES ucall
when the guest kernel reboots. And it also gets implicitly unshared by
the Ultravisor/Hypervisor, if the SVM abruptly terminates.

Shouldn't be hard to support: set up the iommu to allow everything
and ack the feature. Right?

It's not a static/linear mapping in this case so we need calls to map DMA
buffers as-needed. I've gotten it to boot with virtio-blk, but the patches
have some hacks and need cleanup, hoping to post them soon.

I'm a bit perplexed how we would manage to boot a guest without those
changes though, this is what I get with qemu 4.1.0:

And then it hangs. This is with TCG so maybe it behaves differently with
KVM, but that's the result I would expect with the current SLOF code.

you are right. In my case, I was providing the kernel image
on the qemu command line. So there was no need for SLOF to read the
virtio disk. Hence it continued without hanging. SLOF needs to be enhanced
to support IOMMU.

With the defaults we have (32bit window limited by 1GB and SLOF residing close to the end of the second GB), it is not
straight forward; also SLOF's XHCI and E1000 already use IOMMU so we should just do this for virtio as well, I am
hacking it now. Thanks,

Can you give us some more explanation please?

This is basically a revert of commit:
  edea902c1c1e ("powerpc/pseries/iommu: Don't use dma_iommu_ops on secure guests")

But neglects to remove the now unnecessary include of svm.h.

Please explain what has changed to make this no longer necessary.

Can you please give people some explanation of why this is safe. After
all the point of the Ultravisor is to protect the guest from a malicious
hypervisor. Giving the hypervisor access to a page of TCEs sounds
dangerous, so please explain why it's not.

Yes. Will do. 

The simple explanation is -- it was a mistake. We should 
not have disabled IOMMU ops for secure guests. Though it enabled
us to use virtio devices, with the help of some additional patches to
the virtio subsystem; in hindsight, we should not have disabled IOMMU
ops for secure VMs  :-(.

Yes. will do, in my next version of the patch.

BTW: this page, which is shareed with the hypervisor contains nothing
but TCE entries. The hypervisor has a need to see those entries, so that it
can update the TCE table with correct entires.

Yes, a malicious hypervisor may try to update the TCE table with entries
that point to incorrect memory location.  But doing so will not help the
hypervisor to steal any data from those memory location, because those
memory location; if accessed by the hypervisor, will only fetch
encrypted data.

At most it can lead to denial of service, but not stolen data.
