Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] s390x: KVM: CPU Topology
Date: Tue,  3 Aug 2021 10:26:43 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi all,

This new series add the implementation of interpretation for
the PTF instruction.

The series is devided in three parts:
1- handling of the STSI instruction forwarding the CPU topology
2- implementation of the interpretation of the PTF instruction
3- use of the PTF interpretation to optimize topology change callback

To provide Topology information to the guest through the STSI
instruction, we need to forward STSI with Function Code 15 to
QEMU which will take care to provide the right information to
the guest.

To let the guest use both the PTF instruction  to check if a topology
change occured and sthe STSI_15.x.x instruction we add a new KVM
capability to enable the topology facility.

2- PTF
To implement PTF interpretation we make the MTCR pending when the
last CPU backed by the vCPU changed from one socket to another.

The PTF instruction will report a topology change if there is any change
with a previous STSI_15_2 SYSIB.
Changes inside a STSI_15_2 SYSIB occur if CPU bits are set or clear
inside the CPU Topology List Entry CPU mask field, which happens with
changes in CPU polarization, dedication, CPU types and adding or
removing CPUs in a socket.

The reporting to the guest is done using the Multiprocessor
Topology-Change-Report (MTCR) bit of the utility entry of the guest's
SCA which will be cleared during the interpretation of PTF.

To check if the topology has been modified we use a new field of the
arch vCPU to save the previous real CPU ID at the end of a schedule
and verify on next schedule that the CPU used is in the same socket.

We deliberatly ignore:
- polarization: only horizontal polarization is currently used in linux.
- CPU Type: only IFL Type are supported in Linux
- Dedication: we consider that only a complete dedicated CPU stack can
  take benefit of the CPU Topology and let the admin take care of that.

from v2 to v3

- use PTF interpretation

- optimize arch_update_cpu_topology using PTF

from v1 to v2:

- Add a KVM capability to let QEMU know we support PTF and STSI 15

- check KVM facility 11 before accepting STSI fc 15

- handle all we can in userland

- add tracing to STSI fc 15
