Subject[PATCH v4 00/20] irqchip/gic-v4: GICv4.1 architecture support
This (now shorter) series expands the existing GICv4 support to deal
with the new GICv4.1 architecture, which comes with a set of major
improvements compared to v4.0:

- One architectural doorbell per vcpu, instead of one doorbell per VLPI

- Doorbell entirely managed by the HW, with an "at most once" delivery
guarantee per non-residency phase and only when requested by the

- A shared memory scheme between ITSs and redistributors, allowing for an
optimised residency sequence (the use of VMOVP becomes less frequent)

- Support for direct virtual SGI delivery (the injection path still involves
the hypervisor), at the cost of losing the active state on SGIs. It
shouldn't be a big deal, but some guest operating systems might notice
(Linux definitely won't care).

On the other hand, public documentation is not available yet, so that's a
bit annoying...

The series is roughly organised in 3 parts:

(1) v4.1 doorbell management
(2) Virtual SGI support
(3) Plumbing of virtual SGIs in KVM


- The whole thing is tested on a FVP model, which can be obtained
free of charge on ARM's developer website. It requires you to
create an account, unfortunately... You'll need a fix for the
devicetree that is in the kernel tree (should be merged before
the 5.6 release).

- This series has uncovered a behaviour that looks like a HW bug on
the Cavium ThunderX (aka TX1) platform. I'd very much welcome some
clarification from the Marvell/Cavium folks on Cc, as well as an
official erratum number if this happens to be an actual bug.

[v3 update]
People have ignored for two months now, and it is fairly obvious
that support for this machine is slowly bit-rotting. Maybe I'll
drop the patch and instead start the process of removing all TX1
support from the kernel (we'd certainly be better off without it).

[v4 update]
TX1 is now broken in mainline, and nobody cares. Make of this what
you want.

* From v3 [3]:
- Rebased on v5.6-rc1
- Considerably smaller thanks to the initial patches being merged
- Small bug fix after the v5.6 merge window

* From v2 [2]:
- Another bunch of fixes thanks to Zenghui Yu's very careful review
- HW-accelerated SGIs are now optional thanks to new architected
discovery/selection bits exposed by KVM and used by the guest kernel
- Rebased on v5.5-rc2

* From v1 [1]:
- A bunch of minor reworks after Zenghui Yu's review
- A workaround for what looks like a new and unexpected TX1 bug
- A subtle reorder of the series so that some patches can go in early
