Subject[PATCH] vhost: move is_le setup to the backend
From
Date
The vq->is_le field is used to fix endianness when accessing the vring via
the cpu_to_vhost16() and vhost16_to_cpu() helpers in the following cases:

1) host is big endian and device is modern virtio

2) host has cross-endian support and device is legacy virtio with a different
endianness than the host

Both cases rely on the VHOST_SET_FEATURES ioctl, but 2) also needs the
VHOST_SET_VRING_ENDIAN ioctl to be called by userspace. Since vq->is_le
is only needed when the backend is active, it was decided to set it at
backend start.

This is currently done in vhost_init_used()->vhost_init_is_le() but it
obfuscates the core vhost code. This patch moves the is_le setup to a
dedicated function that is called from the backend code.

Note vhost_net is the only backend that can pass vq->private_data == NULL to
vhost_init_used(), hence the "if (sock)" branch.

No behaviour change.

Hi Michael,

This is a cleanup patch I had posted last year:

http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/538277/

I am just reposting with Cornelia's R-b.

Cheers.
