Subject: [RFC v3 0/5] virtio: support packed ring
Date: Wed, 25 Apr 2018 13:15:45 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180425051550.24342-1-tiwei.bie@intel.com> (raw)

Hello everyone,

This RFC implements packed ring support in virtio driver.

Some simple functional tests have been done with Jason's
packed ring implementation in vhost:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/4/23/12

Both of ping and netperf worked as expected (with EVENT_IDX
disabled). But there are below known issues:

1. Reloading the guest driver will break the Tx/Rx;
2. Zeroing the flags when detaching a used desc will
   break the guest -> host path.

Some simple functional tests have also been done with
Wei's packed ring implementation in QEMU:

http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-04/msg00342.html

Both of ping and netperf worked as expected (with EVENT_IDX
disabled). Reloading the guest driver also worked as expected.

TODO:
- Refinements (for code and commit log) and bug fixes;
- Discuss/fix/test EVENT_IDX support;
- Test devices other than net;

RFC v2 -> RFC v3:
- Split into small patches (Jason);
- Add helper virtqueue_use_indirect() (Jason);
- Just set id for the last descriptor of a list (Jason);
- Calculate the prev in virtqueue_add_packed() (Jason);
- Fix/improve desc suppression code (Jason/MST);
- Refine the code layout for XXX_split/packed and wrappers (MST);
- Fix the comments and API in uapi (MST);
- Remove the BUG_ON() for indirect (Jason);
- Some other refinements and bug fixes;

RFC v1 -> RFC v2:
- Add indirect descriptor support - compile test only;
- Add event suppression supprt - compile test only;
- Move vring_packed_init() out of uapi (Jason, MST);
- Merge two loops into one in virtqueue_add_packed() (Jason);
- Split vring_unmap_one() for packed ring and split ring (Jason);
- Avoid using '%' operator (Jason);
- Rename free_head -> next_avail_idx (Jason);
- Add comments for virtio_wmb() in virtqueue_add_packed() (Jason);
- Some other refinements and bug fixes;

Thanks!
