Subject[PATCH v6 0/4] Implement vdpasim suspend operation
Date
Implement suspend operation for vdpa_sim devices, so vhost-vdpa will offer
that backend feature and userspace can effectively suspend the device.

This is a must before getting virtqueue indexes (base) for live migration,
since the device could modify them after userland gets them. There are
individual ways to perform that action for some devices
(VHOST_NET_SET_BACKEND, VHOST_VSOCK_SET_RUNNING, ...) but there was no
way to perform it for any vhost device (and, in particular, vhost-vdpa).

After a successful return of ioctl the device must not process more virtqueue
descriptors. The device can answer to read or writes of config fields as if it
were not suspended. In particular, writing to "queue_enable" with a value of 1
will not make the device start processing virtqueue buffers.

In the future, we will provide features similar to
VHOST_USER_GET_INFLIGHT_FD so the device can save pending operations.

Comments are welcome.

v7:
* Remove the resume operation, making the ioctl simpler. We can always add
another ioctl for VM_STOP/VM_RESUME operation later.

v6:
* s/stop/suspend/ to differentiate more from reset.
* Clarify scope of the suspend operation.

v5:
* s/not stop/resume/ in doc.

v4:
* Replace VHOST_STOP to VHOST_VDPA_STOP in vhost ioctl switch case too.

v3:
* s/VHOST_STOP/VHOST_VDPA_STOP/
* Add documentation and requirements of the ioctl above its definition.

v2:
* Replace raw _F_STOP with BIT_ULL(_F_STOP).
* Fix obtaining of stop ioctl arg (it was not obtained but written).
* Add stop to vdpa_sim_blk.

Eugenio Pérez (4):
vdpa: Add suspend operation
vhost-vdpa: introduce SUSPEND backend feature bit
vhost-vdpa: uAPI to suspend the device
vdpa_sim: Implement suspend vdpa op
