Subject[PATCH v3 0/9] [RFC] vfio: ap: ioctl definitions for AP Queue Interrupt Control
This patch implement PQAP/AQIC interception in KVM.

To implement this we need to add a new structure, vfio_ap_queue,to be
able to retrieve the mediated device associated with a queue and specific
values needed to register/unregister the interrupt structures:
- APQN: to be able to issue the commands and search for queue structures
- NIB : to unpin the NIB on clear IRQ
- ISC : to unregister with the GIB interface
- MATRIX: a pointer to the matrix mediated device
- DEV: a pointer to the AP queue device from AP bus.

1) Phase 1, probe and remove from vfio_ap_queue

The vfio_ap_queue structures are dynamically allocated when a queue
is probed by the ap_vfio_driver.
It is linked to the ap_queue device as the driver data.
We store the APQN of the ap_queue device inside the vfio_ap_queue.
The vfio_ap_queue are free during remove.

2) Phase 2, assignment of vfio_ap_queue to a mediated device

When the VFIO device is opened the queues are associated to
the mediated device, at the same time the CRYCB is setup.

When the device is closed or if a queue is removed the queue is
dissociated from the mediated device, as the same time the
CRYCB is cleared.

Two new functions are used for this: associate/disassociate.

3) Phase 3 intercepting the PQAP/AQIC instruction

On interception of the PQAP/AQIC instruction, the interception code
makes sure the pqap_hook is initialized and allowed to be called
and call it.
Otherwise it reports the usual -EOPNOTSUPP return code to let
QEMU handle the fault.

the pqap callback search for the queue asociated with the APQN
stored in the register 0, setting the code to "illegal APQN"
if the vfio_ap_queue can not be found.

Depending on the "i" bit of the register 1, the pqap callback
setup or clear the interruption by calling the host format PQAP/AQIC
When seting up the interruption it uses the NIB and the guest ISC
provided by the guest and the host ISC provided by the registration
to the GIB code, pin the NIB and also stores ISC and NIB inside
the vfio_ap_queue structure.
When clearing the interrupt it retrieves the host ISC to unregister
with the GIB code and unpin the NIB.

There is a QEMU patch which is needed to enable the PQAP/AQIC
facility in the guest.

4) Phase 4 clean dissociation from the mediated device on remove

On removing of the AP device the remove callback is called.
To be sure that the guest will not access the queue anymore
we clear the APID CRYCB bit.
Cleaning the APID, over the APQI, is chosen because the architecture
specifies that only the APID can be dynamically changed outside IPL.
After this the queue is zeroes, care is taken to correctly wait until
the queue is empty.
