The name service announcement should not be linked to the RPMsg virtio bus
but to the RPMsg protocol itself.

This patch proposes to break the dependency with the RPmsg virtio bus by
the introduction of the reserved RPMsg name service driver which will be in
charge of managing the RPMsg name service announcement.

This first patch only implements the probe and the RPMsg endpoint to
manage create and release channels remote requests.

This is about to get moved to a header file [1] so that the virtualisation people
can use the same structures.  As such we can't just assume their type is __le32
and we can't move them here either.  I suggest to move this to
include/linux/rpmsg/virtio.h as Guennadi did.

I've been staring at this for a long time and I suspect you did too.

Can we assume that a name service is running on a virtio implementation?  It
certainly has been the case so far, and doing so would make this patchset a lot
more simple.  Otherwise we need to find a way to make this work without
losing flexibility, which will make things more complex.

What do you think?

The objective of this patch is to treat the ns annoucement as a service so it should not 
depend on the virtio.
From my POV we have to separate the header from the payload in term of endianness.

That make sense that the rpmsg_hdr is virtio struct dependent. But the rpmsg_ns_msg  
describes the payload message. The payload message should be fixed by the service itself
and should not depend on the virualization.
Here i proposed to fix the payload in little endian for compatibility with the legacy.
But we also could decide to not fixe the endianess.

I am not sure to understand your point...
I'm also intertesting in understanding more in details what do you have in mind in term of 
"losing flexibility"?

The purpose of this patchset is to generalize the ns announcement so that it does
not depend on the implementation. The goal is to avoid that implementations
rewrite the service.

The vhost patchset is an exemple which is also virtio based. But there are some other
implementations (exemples below).

Anyway I think the main question associated to this patchset is:
Is the ns annoucement is a RPMsg service or a virtio RPMsg service?

From my point of view it should be a RPMsg service, that is enbled or
not, depending on the backend implementation.

2 other ns annoucement service exemples:
- the mtk_rpmsg driver[1].
- In ST we have a PoC to extend the rpmsg over a physical serial link [2]. Notice that, with
  this implementation we can have the LE-BE inter-communication use case. 
  For this PoC we also defined a common file that does not depend on the virtio[3], so
  an alternative to what Guennadi did in include/linux/rpmsg/virtio.h.

I agree that name service announcement and virtio are disjoint and
should remain as such.  That being said I would like to avoid the
proliferation of "struct rpmsg_ns_msg" in the kernel.  I am convinced
we can find a middle ground that can work for everyone.

I think the only way forward is to take the time to really understand
how the rpmsg_ns_msg is used in [1].  I will do that tomorrow
(Wednesday) or Thursday and I suggest you do the same at one point.

I was referring to the format of the rpmsg_ns_msg and the transport
layer, i.e virtio, Glink or otherwise.

I agree.

As I said above I don't think we can move forward with this set and
[1] until we understand how name space services are used in the vhost
driver.  That will help us define the rpmsg_ns_msg structure and how
to handle it in a generic way.  Otherwise I think the rest of this set
works.

I will get back to you once I have gone through [1].

Thanks,
Mathieu

As I said in an earlier comment I would like to avoid redefining structures that
already exist.  With this patch [1] we made structure rpmsg_hdr and rpmsg_ns_msg
virtIO specific, which in hindsight, wasn't the best move forward.  After taking
another look at this set and keeping Guennadi's work in mind it is probably best
to keep rpmsg_hdr and rpmsg_ns_msg generic and do the byte conversion based on
the transport layer used by the rpmsg_device.  Taking the above as an example we
would have:

        chinfo.dst = rpmsg32_to_cpu(rpdev, msg->addr);

Where rpmsg32_to_cpu() would be defined as follow:

u32 rpmsg32_to_cpu(struct rpmsg_device *rpdev, u32 val)
{
        return rpdev->ops->transport32_to_cpu(rpdev, val); 
}

And in the case of a virtIO based rpmsg_device like we currently have:

u32 virtio_transport32_to_cpu(struct rpmsg_device *rpdev, u32 val)
{
        struct virtio_rpmsg_channel *vch = to_virtio_rpmsg_channel(rpdev);
        struct virtproc_info *vrp = vch->vrp;

        return virtio32_to_cpu(vrp->vdev, val);
}

That would allow the virtualisation people (and anyone else) to use the RPMSG
common code without modification and split up RPMSG name service from the
transport layer, as you're doing in this patch.

We need to fix the current code before moving further with either
patchset (yours and Guennadi's).  I started working on a patchset that does that
but I'll need to merge it with yours on Monday (I'm out of time for today).

Thanks,
Mathieu

That makes sense.
