Subject: [KVM PATCH v4 0/2] irqfd
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 4th May 2009 17:57:40 UTC (over 7 years ago)
(Applies to kvm.git:7da2e3ba, plus you will also need Davide Libenzi's
eventfd_file_create() patch, which you can find here:

http:[email protected]/msg13923.html

You can find my complete tree with kvm.git, Davide's patch, and this series
here:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/ghaskins/vbus/linux-2.6.git;a=shortlog;h=irqfd

----------------------

irqfd, v4

This series implements a mechanism called "irqfd".  It lets you create
an eventfd based file-desriptor to inject interrupts to a kvm guest. For
more details, please see the prologue for patch 2/2.

[ Changelog:

   v4:
        *) Changed allocation model to create the new fd last, after
           we get past the last potential error point by using Davide's
           new eventfd_file_create interface (Al Viro, Davide Libenzi)
	*) We no longer export sys_eventfd2() since it is replaced
           functionally with eventfd_file_create();
        *) Rebased to kvm.git:7da2e3ba

   v3:
        *) The kernel now allocates the eventfd (need to export
sys_eventfd2)
        *) Added a flags field for future expansion to kvm_irqfd()
        *) We properly toggle the irq level 1+0.
        *) We re-use the USERSPACE_SRC_ID instead of creating our own
        *) Properly check for failures establishing a poll-table with
eventfd
	*) Fixed fd/file leaks on failure
	*) Rebased to lateste kvm.git::41b76d8d04

   v2:
	*) Dropped notifier_chain based callbacks in favor of
	   wait_queue_t::func and file::poll based callbacks (Thanks to
	   Davide for the suggestion)

   v1:
        *) Initial release

--------

We do not have a user of this interface in this series, though note
future version of virtual-bus (v4 and above) will be based on this.

Note that this series requires userspace patches for qemu-kvm.git, v3,
which
you can find here: http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/20213/
