Subject: [PATCH 0/3] x86: Add initial support to discover Intel hybrid CPUs
Date: Fri,  2 Oct 2020 13:19:28 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Add support to discover and enumerate CPUs in Intel hybrid parts. A hybrid
part has CPUs with more than one type of micro-architecture. Thus, certain
features may only be present in a specific CPU type.

It is useful to know the type of CPUs present in a system. For instance,
perf may need to handle CPUs differently depending on the type of micro-
architecture. Decoding machine check error logs may need the additional
micro-architecture type information, so include that in the log.

A hybrid part can be identified by reading a new CPUID feature bit.
Likewise, CPUID contains information about the CPU type as well as a new
native model ID. Details can be found in the Intel manual (SDM, [1]).

This series adds support for Intel hybrid parts in two areas: a) adding
the hybrid feature bit as well as struct cpuinfo_x86; and b) decode machine
check errors on hybrid parts.

A later submission will use the proposed functionality to expose the CPU
topology to user space.

Thanks and BR,

Vol 2. Section 3.2.CPUID leaf 0x1a
