Hi,

RFCv1 --> v2
   - Dropped "pinned VMID" support for now.
   - Dropped RFC tag.

Sanity tested on HiSilicon D06 board.

Thanks,
Shameer

History:
-------
Please find the RFC series here,
https://lore.kernel.org/kvmarm/20210506165232.1969-1-shameerali.kolothum.thodi@huawei.com/

From RFCv1:

This is based on a suggestion from Will [0] to try out the asid
based kvm vmid solution as a separate VMID allocator instead of
the shared lib approach attempted in v4[1].

The idea is to compare both the approaches and see whether the
shared lib solution with callbacks make sense or not. 

Though we are not using the pinned vmids yet, patch #2 has
code for pinned vmid support. This is just to help the comparison.

Test Setup/Results
----------------
The measurement was made with maxcpus set to 8 and with the
number of VMID limited to 4-bit. The test involves running
concurrently 40 guests with 2 vCPUs. Each guest will then
execute hackbench 5 times before exiting.

The performance difference between the current algo and the
new one are(avg. of 10 runs):
    - 1.9% less entry/exit from the guest
    - 0.5% faster

This is more or less comparable to v4 numbers.

For the complete series, please see,
https://github.com/hisilicon/kernel-dev/tree/private-v5.12-rc7-vmid-2nd-rfc

and for the shared asid lib v4 solution,
https://github.com/hisilicon/kernel-dev/tree/private-v5.12-rc7-asid-v4

As you can see there are ofcourse code duplication with this
approach but may be it is more easy to maintain considering
the complexity involved.
