Subject[RFC PATCH v4 0/6] Deliver vGPU display refresh event to userspace
Date
This series tries to send the vGPU display refresh event to user land.

Instead of delivering page flip events only or vblank events only, we
choose to combine two of them, i.e. post display refresh event at vblanks
and skip some of them when no page flip happens. Vblanks as upper bound
are safe and skipping no-page-flip vblanks guarantees both trivial performance
impacts and good user experience without screen tearing. Plus, we have the
mask/unmask mechansim providing user space flexibility to switch between
event-notified refresh and classic timer-based refresh.

In addition, there are some cases that guest app only uses one framebuffer
for both drawing and display. In such case, guest OS won't do the plane page
flip when the framebuffer is updated, thus the user land won't be notified
about the updated framebuffer. Hence, in single framebuffer case, we apply
a heuristic to determine whether it is the case or not. If it is, notify user
land when each vblank event triggers.

v4:
- Deliver page flip event and single framebuffer refresh event bounded
by display vblanks. (Kechen)
v3:
- Deliver display vblank event instead of page flip event. (Zhenyu)
v2:
- Use VFIO irq chain to get eventfds from userspace instead of adding
a new ABI. (Alex)
v1:
