From: Alex Williamson <alex.williamson <at> redhat.com>
Subject: [PATCH v5 0/4] kvm: level irqfd and new eoifd
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.emulators.kvm.devel
Date: Monday 16th July 2012 20:33:38 UTC (over 5 years ago)
v5:
 - irqfds now have a one-to-one mapping with eoifds to prevent users
   from consuming all of kernel memory by repeatedly creating eoifds
   from a single irqfd.
 - implement a kvm_clear_irq() which does a test_and_clear_bit of
   the irq_state, only updating the pic/ioapic if changes and allowing
   the caller to know if anything was done.  I added this onto the end
   as it's essentially an optimization on the previous design.  It's
   hard to tell if there's an actual performance benefit to this.
 - dropped eoifd gsi support patch as it was only an FYI.

Thanks,

Alex
