Subject: [PATCH 0/4] kvm: level triggered irqfd support
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.emulators.kvm.devel
Date: Friday 22nd June 2012 22:15:09 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Here's a refined series based on my previous RFC.  I now have this
working through VFIO-based device assignment in Qemu.  I've split
up the patches and tried to generalize the interface as one of
potentially a couple ways we might support level irqfds.  I also
tried to document the requirements around re-asserting interrupts
and expectations for avoiding races.

The last patch in the series is just an FYI/RFC of something I
expect we're also going to need.  We want to take advantage of KVM
irqchip, but not be dependent on it.  That means we'll want to come
up with a way for Qemu to notify drivers of an EOI.  We won't want
that interface to break when when enabling the in-kernel irqchip.
The needs are just different enough that I don't see how to combine
them together.  Thanks,

Alex
