* KVM: cleanup io_device codeGregory Haskins2009-09-101-10/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | We modernize the io_device code so that we use container_of() instead of dev->private, and move the vtable to a separate ops structure (theoretically allows better caching for multiple instances of the same ops structure) Signed-off-by: Gregory Haskins <ghaskins@novell.com> Acked-by: Chris Wright <chrisw@sous-sol.org> Signed-off-by: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>
* KVM: Clean up coalesced_mmio destructionGregory Haskins2009-09-101-1/+4
| | | | | | | | | | We invoke kfree() on a data member instead of the structure. This works today because the kvm_io_device is the first element of the private structure, but this could change in the future, so lets clean this up.

* KVM: Add coalesced MMIO support (common part)Laurent Vivier2008-07-201-0/+156
This patch adds all needed structures to coalesce MMIOs. Until an architecture uses it, it is not compiled. Coalesced MMIO introduces two ioctl() to define where are the MMIO zones that can be coalesced: - KVM_REGISTER_COALESCED_MMIO registers a coalesced MMIO zone. It requests one parameter (struct kvm_coalesced_mmio_zone) which defines a memory area where MMIOs can be coalesced until the next switch to user space. The maximum number of MMIO zones is KVM_COALESCED_MMIO_ZONE_MAX. - KVM_UNREGISTER_COALESCED_MMIO cancels all registered zones inside the given bounds (bounds are also given by struct kvm_coalesced_mmio_zone). The userspace client can check kernel coalesced MMIO availability by asking ioctl(KVM_CHECK_EXTENSION) for the KVM_CAP_COALESCED_MMIO capability. The ioctl() call to KVM_CAP_COALESCED_MMIO will return 0 if not supported, or the page offset where will be stored the ring buffer. The page offset depends on the architecture. After an ioctl(KVM_RUN), the first page of the KVM memory mapped points to a kvm_run structure. The offset given by KVM_CAP_COALESCED_MMIO is an offset to the coalesced MMIO ring expressed in PAGE_SIZE relatively to the address of the start of th kvm_run structure. The MMIO ring buffer is defined by the structure kvm_coalesced_mmio_ring.
