Subject[PATCH v6 0/9] vITS Migration fixes and reset
This series fixes various bugs observed when saving/restoring the
ITS state before the guest writes the ITS registers (on first boot or
after reset/reboot).

This is a follow up of Wanghaibin's series [1] plus additional
patches following additional code review. It also proposes one
ITS reset implementation.

Currently, the in-kernel emulated ITS is not reset. After a
reset/reboot, the ITS register values and caches are left
unchanged. Registers may point to some tables in guest memory
which do not exist anymore. If an ITS state backup is initiated
before the guest re-writes the registers, the save fails
because inconsistencies are detected. Also restore of data saved
as such moment is failing.

Patches [1-4] are fixes of bugs observed during migration at
early guets boot stage.
- handle case where all collection, device and ITT entries are
invalid on restore (which is not an error)
- Check the GITS_BASER<n> valid bit before attempting the save
any table
- Check the GITS_BASER<n> and GITS_CBASER are valid before enabling
the ITS

Patches [5-9] allow to empty the caches on reset and implement a
new ITS reset IOCTL

Best Regards


Git: complete series available at

* Testing:
- on Cavium using a virtio-net-pci guest and various sequences of
guest shutdown -r now, virsh reset, virsh suspend/resume,
virsh reboot, virsh save.restore, virsh shutdown

[1] [RFC PATCH 0/3] fix migrate failed when vm is in booting

v5 -> v6:
as per the discussions we had in the KVM forum, :
- don't try to fix everything without reset IOCTL
- removed "KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Save the collection table
before device tables"
- remove "The command queue is not allocated:" in API doc
- rework the locking in last patch
- vgic_its_free_device_list and vgic_its_free_collection_list
do not take the its->lock anymore. The caller does.
- in vgic_its_restore_collection_table(), return 0 if last
vgic_its_restore_cte returned +1

v4 -> v5:
- came back to the original version of
KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Fix return value for device table restore
Rework of error handling will come later
- remove [PATCH v4 03/11] KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Improve error reporting
on device table save as of now
- remove KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Always attempt to save/restore device
and collection tables
inversing the save order of device/collection tables fixes the same issue
- reword ITS IOCTL doc
- add mutex lock in vgic_its_free_collection_list
- remove vgic_its_unmap_device

v3 -> v4:
- fixes a bug in indirect mode: in handle_l1_dte, set
*valid at the beginning of the function

v2 -> v3:
- Revisited error handling in restore functions
- Added "KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: fix
vgic_its_restore_collection_table returned value"
- Added "KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Check CBASER/BASER validity
before enabling the ITS"
- Removed KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Always allow clearing
- Reworded documentation according to Christoffer's comments

v1 -> v2:
- added KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Always attempt to save/restore
device and collection tables

- series including 2 modified patches of Wanghaibin

KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Fix vgic_its_restore_collection_table
returned value

the ITS
KVM: arm/arm64: vgic-its: Check GITS_BASER Valid bit before saving
