kvm ptp targets to provide high precision time sync between guest
and host in virtualization environment. This patch enable kvm ptp
for arm64.
This patch set base on [1][2][3]

change log:
from v2 to v3:
        (1) fix some issues in commit log.
        (2) add some receivers in send list.
from v1 to v2:
        (1) move arch-specific code from arch/ to driver/ptp/
        (2) offer mechanism to inform userspace if ptp_kvm service is
available.
        (3) separate ptp_kvm code for arm64 into hypervisor part and
guest part.
        (4) add API to expose monotonic clock and counter value.
        (5) refine code: remove no necessary part and reconsitution.

If arm_smccc_1_1_invoke used in modules, psci_ops.conduit should
be export.

Currently, ptp_kvm modules implementation is only for x86 which includs
large part of arch-specific code.  This patch move all of those code
into sole arch related file in the same directory.

From Marc Zyngier <maz@kernel.org>
A number of PTP drivers (such as ptp-kvm) are assuming what the
current clock source is, which could lead to interesting effects on
systems where the clocksource can change depending on external events.

For this purpose, add a new API that retrives both the current
monotonic clock as well as its counter value.

From Jianyong Wu: export this API then modules can use it.

This patch is the base of ptp_kvm for arm64.
ptp_kvm modules will call hvc to get this service.
The service offers real time and counter cycle of host for guest.

Currently in arm64 virtualization environment, there is no mechanism to
keep time sync between guest and host. Time in guest will drift compared
with host after boot up as they may both use third party time sources
to correct their time respectively. The time deviation will be in order
of milliseconds but some scenarios ask for higher time precision, like
in cloud envirenment, we want all the VMs running in the host aquire the
same level accuracy from host clock.

Use of kvm ptp clock, which choose the host clock source clock as a
reference clock to sync time clock between guest and host has been adopted
by x86 which makes the time sync order from milliseconds to nanoseconds.

This patch enable kvm ptp on arm64 and we get the similar clock drift as
found with x86 with kvm ptp.

Test result comparison between with kvm ptp and without it in arm64 are
as follows. This test derived from the result of command 'chronyc
sources'. we should take more cure of the last sample column which shows
the offset between the local clock and the source at the last measurement.

no kvm ptp in guest:

The dns1.synet.edu.cn is the network reference clock for guest and
120.25.115.20 is the network reference clock for host. we can't get the
clock error between guest and host directly, but a roughly estimated value
will be in order of hundreds of us to ms.

with kvm ptp in guest:
chrony has been disabled in host to remove the disturb by network clock.

The PHC0 is the ptp clock which choose the host clock as its source
clock. So we can be sure to say that the clock error between host and guest
is in order of ns.

Let userspace check if there is kvm ptp service in host.
before VMs migrate to a another host, VMM may check if this
cap is available to determine the migration behaviour.

This is not Y2038-safe.  Please use ktime_get_real_ts64 instead, and
split the 64-bit seconds value between val[0] and val[1].

However, it seems to me that the new function is not needed and you can
just use ktime_get_snapshot.  You'll get the time in
systime_snapshot->real and the cycles value in systime_snapshot->cycles.

This should return a guest-cycles value.  If the cycles values always
the same between the host and the guest on ARM, then okay.  If not, you
have to apply whatever offset exists.

Thanks,

See review of patch 4.  ktime_get_snapshot is even better for your
needs, if I'm not mistaken.

As far as I know, y2038-safe will only affect signed 32-bit integer, how does it affect 64-bit integer?
And why split 64-bit number into two blocks is necessary?
Also, split number will lead to shortage of return value.

See patch 5/6, I need both counter cycle and clocksource, ktime_get_snapshot seems only offer cycles.

In my opinion, when use ptp_kvm as clock sources to sync time between host and guest, user should promise the guest and host has no
clock offset. So we can be sure that the cycle between guest and host should be keep consistent. But I need check it.
I think host cycle should be returned to guest as we should promise we get clock and counter in the same time.

val is an u32, not an u64.  (And val[0], where you store the seconds, is
best treated as signed, since val[0] == -1 is returned for
SMCCC_RET_NOT_SUPPORTED).

No, patch 5/6 only needs the current clock (ptp_sc.cycles is never
accessed).  So you could just use READ_ONCE(tk->tkr_mono.clock).

However, even then I don't think it is correct to use ptp_sc.cs blindly
in patch 5.  I think there is a misunderstanding on the meaning of
system_counterval.cs as passed to get_device_system_crosststamp.
system_counterval.cs is not the active clocksource; it's the clocksource
on which system_counterval.cycles is based.

Hypothetically, the clocksource could be one for which ptp_sc.cycles is
_not_ a cycle value.  If you set system_counterval.cs to the system
clocksource, get_device_system_crosststamp will return a bogus value.
So system_counterval.cs should be set to something like
&clocksource_counter (from drivers/clocksource/arm_arch_timer.c).
Perhaps the right place to define kvm_arch_ptp_get_clock_fn is in that file?

What would be the adverse effect of having a fixed offset between guest
and host?  If there were one, you'd have to check that and fail the
hypercall if there is an offset.  But again, I think it's enough to
subtract vcpu_vtimer(vcpu)->cntvoff or something like that.

You also have to check here that the clocksource is based on the ARM
architectural timer.  Again, maybe you could place the implementation in
drivers/clocksource/arm_arch_timer.c, and make it return -ENODEV if the
active clocksource is not clocksource_counter.  Then KVM can look for
errors and return SMCCC_RET_NOT_SUPPORTED in that case.

Thanks,

Paolo

Yeah, need consider twice.
Val[] should be long not u32 I think, so in arm64 I can avoid that Y2038_safe, but
also need rewrite for arm32.

Yeah, patch 5/6 just need clocksource, but I think tk->tkr_mono.clock can't read in external like module,
So I need an API to expose clocksource.

I think we can use system_counterval_t as pass current clocksource to system_counterval_t.cs and its
corresponding cycles to system_counterval_t.cycles. is it a big problem?

Yeah, but in patch 3/6, we have a corresponding pair of clock source and cycle value. So I think there will be no
that problem in this patch set.
In the implementation of get_device_system_crosststamp:
"
...
if (tk->tkr_mono.clock != system_counterval.cs)
                        return -ENODEV;
...
"
We need tk->tkr_mono.clock passed to get_device_system_crosststamp, just like patch 3/6 do, otherwise will return error.

I have checked that ptp_sc.cs is arch_sys_counter.
Also move the module API to arm_arch_timer.c will looks a little ugly and it's not easy to be accept by arm side I think.

Sure, counter offset should be considered.

I have checked it. The clock source is arch_sys_counter which is arm arch timer.
I can try to do that but I'm not sure arm side will be happy for that change.

I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with u32 val[], and as
you notice it lets you reuse code between arm and arm64.  It's up to you
and Marc to decide.

... if the hypercall returns an architectural timer value, you must not
pass tk->tkr.mono.clock to get_device_system_crosststamp: you must pass
&clocksource_counter.  This way, PTP is disabled when using any other
clocksource.

I don't think it's ugly but more important, using tk->tkr_mono.clock is
incorrect.  See how the x86 code hardcodes &kvm_clock, it's the same for
ARM.

Just try.  For my taste, it's nice to include both sides of the
hypercall in drivers/clocksource/arm_arch_timer.c, possibly
conditionalizing them on #ifdef CONFIG_KVM and #ifdef
CONFIG_PTP_1588_CLOCK_KVM.  But there is an alternative which is simply
to export the clocksource struct.  Both choices are easy to implement so
you can just ask the ARM people what they prefer and they can judge from
the code.

Not really. The guest kernel is free to use any clocksource it wishes.
In some cases, it is actually desirable (like these broken systems that
cannot use an in-kernel irqchip...). Maybe it is that on x86 the guest
only uses the kvm_clock, but that's a much harder sell on ARM. The fact
that ptp_kvm assumes that the clocksource is fixed doesn't seem correct
in that case.

Understood, in fact it's the same on x86.

However, for PTP to work, the cycles value returned by the clocksource
must match the one returned by the hypercall.  So for ARM
get_device_system_crosststamp must receive the arch timer clocksource,
so that it will return -ENODEV if the active clocksource is anything else.

After day's reflection on this, I'm a little clear about this issue, let me clarify it.
I think there is three principles for this issue:
(1): guest and host can use different clocksouces as their current clocksouce at the same time
and we can't  or it's not easy to probe that if they use the same one.
(2): the cycle value and the clocksouce which passed to get_device_system_crosststamp must be match.
(3): ptp_kvm target to increase the time sync precision so we should choose a high rate clocksource as ptp_kvm clocksource.
Base on (1) and (2) we can deduce that the ptp_kvm clocksource should be better a fixed one. So we can test if the cycle and
clocksource is match. 
Base on (3) the arch_sys_timer should be chosen, as it's the best clocksource by far for arm.

To compatible 32-bit, Integrates second value and nanosecond value as a nanosecond value then split it into val[0] and val[1] and split cycle value into val[2] and val[3],
 In this way, time will overflow at Y2262.
WDYT?

So if I understand correctly you'd multiply by 10^9 (or better shift by
30) the nanoseconds.

That works, but why not provide 5 output registers?  Alternatively, take
an address as input and write there.

Finally, on x86 we added an argument for the CLOCK_* that is being read
(currently only CLOCK_REALTIME, but having room for extensibility in the
API is always nice).

It will be easy,  if I could have expanded the store room. But these code is the infrastructure for hypercall, I can't change them at my will.
I think only value but pointer can delivered by smccc_set_retval call.

IMO, I will be limited by the design of hypercall on arm64, I can only design my code under it. maybe it will be better sometime but for now I could just obey it.

As ptp_kvm clock has fixed to arm arch system counter in patch set v4, we need check if the current clocksource is system counter when return clock cycle in host,
so a helper needed to return the current clocksource.
Could I add this helper in next patch set?

You don't need a helper.  You need to return the ARM arch counter
clocksource in the struct system_counterval_t that you return.
get_device_system_crosststamp will then check that the clocksource
matches the active one.

We must ensure both of the host and guest using the same clocksource.
get_device_system_crosststamp will check the clocksource of guest and we also need check
the clocksource in host, and struct type can't be transferred from host to guest using arm hypercall.
now we lack of a mechanism to check the current clocksource. I think this will be useful if we add one.

Got it---yes, I think adding a struct clocksource to struct
system_time_snapshot would make sense.  Then the hypercall can just use
ktime_get_snapshot and fail if the clocksource is not the ARM arch counter.

John (Stultz), does that sound good to you?  The context is that
Jianyong would like to add a hypercall that returns a (cycles,
nanoseconds) pair to the guest.  On x86 we're relying on the vclock_mode
field that is already there for the vDSO, but being able to just use
ktime_get_snapshot would be much nicer.

I've not really looked at the code closely in awhile, so I'm not sure
my suggestions will be too useful.

My only instinct is maybe to not include the clocksource pointer in
the system_time_snapshot, as I worry that structure will then be
abused by the interface users.  If you're just wanting to make sure
the clocksource is what you're expecting, would instead putting only
the clocksource name in the structure suffice?

thanks

Well, it would suffice but it would be quite ugly to do a string
comparison later.

What kind of abuse are you thinking of?  We already have struct
system_counterval_t for a clocksource+cycles tuple, so it seemed obvious
to me to make system_time_snapshot a superset of it...  In fact,
system_time_snapshot's cycles member is even unused currently, so it
could even be easily replaced by a struct system_counterval_t, instead
of adding an extra field.

Could I add struct clocksource to system_time_snapshot struct in next version of my patch set?

Yes, I say go ahead.  At least it will get closer to a final design.
