Subject[PATCH 0/6] sparc: Enable sun4v hypervisor PCI IOMMU v2 APIs and ATU
ATU (Address Translation Unit) is a new IOMMU in SPARC supported with
sun4v hypervisor PCI IOMMU v2 APIs.

Current SPARC IOMMU supports only 32bit address ranges and one TSB
per PCIe root complex that has a 2GB per root complex DVMA space
limit. The limit has become a scalability bottleneck nowadays that
a typical 10G/40G NIC can consume 500MB DVMA space per instance.
When DVMA resource is exhausted, devices will not be usable
since the driver can't allocate DVMA.

For example, we recently experienced legacy IOMMU limitation while
using i40e driver in system with large number of CPUs (e.g. 128).
Four ports of i40e, each request 128 QP (Queue Pairs). Each queue has
512 (default) descriptors. So considering only RX queues (because RX
premap DMA buffers), i40e takes 4*128*512 number of DMA entries in
IOMMU table. Legacy IOMMU can have at max (2G/8K)- 1 entries available
in table. So bringing up four instance of i40e alone saturate existing
IOMMU resource.

ATU removes bottleneck by allowing guest os to create IOTSB of size
32G (or more) with 64bit address ranges available in ATU HW. 32G is
more than enough DVMA space to be shared by all PCIe devices under
root complex contrast to 2G space provided by legacy IOMMU.

ATU allows PCIe devices to use 64bit DMA addressing. Devices
which choose to use 32bit DMA mask will continue to work with the
existing legacy IOMMU.

The patch set is tested on sun4v (T1000, T2000, T3, T4, T5, T7, S7)
and sun4u SPARC.
