Subject[PATCH RFC] virtio-spec: flexible configuration layout
Here's a spec change documenting what my C patch does
(almost - I tweaked the layout a bit, but the idea is the same).
Some more cleanups are needed but I thought I'd send it
for early flames/comments.

The idea is simple: we split functionally unrelated
register groups to independent structures, and let
the device place is anywhere using a capability
in PCI configuration space.

It can then go into MMIO space which is cheaper than PIO.

A legacy portion of the configuration is mirrored
in the first BAR, to keep legacy drivers working.
Any new fields can be added in existing structures
at the end, so they won't affect legacy.
Alternatively we can add new structures with new
structure IDs, pointed to from PCI configuration space.

As we don't yet have devices or drivers with 64 bit features,
I decided we don't need high feature bits in legacy space.
This also frees up feature bit 31 as we don't need it
to enable high feature bits anymore.

As this solves the dynamic placement of MSIX vectors
and high feature bits,
I thought it's easier to just reserve space for that
programming than give it a separate structure. This
can be changed by a patch on top.

Note that data path is split from configuration.

PDF will follow.

+\end_layout

+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320780912
+
+\emph on
+Capability ID
+\emph default
+,
+\emph on
+Next Capability Pointer
+\emph default
+,
+\emph on
+Capability Length
+\emph default
+ - these fields are specified by PCI local bus specification, Rev 3.0
+\end_layout
+
+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320785073
+
+\emph on
+Structure ID
+\emph default
+ - identifies the structure mapped.
+ If an ID representing a specific structure is absent, the structure is
+ located in the legacy virtio configuration in the first PCI BAR.
+\end_layout
+
+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320782689
+
+\emph on
+Size
+\emph default
+ - size of the structure mapped.
+ This size might include padding, or fields unused by the driver.
+ Drivers are also recommended to only map part of configuration structure
+ large enough for device operation.
+ For example, a future device might present a large structure size of several
+ MBytes.
+ As current devices never utilize structures larger than 4KBytes in size,
+ driver can limit the mapped structure size to e.g.
+ 4KBytes to allow forward compatibility with such devices without loss of
+ functionality and without wasting resources.
+\change_unchanged
+
+\end_layout
+
+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320781965
+
+\emph on
+BAR Indicator Register
+\emph default
+ - Indicates which one of the BAR registers, located beginning at 10h in
+ Configuration Space, is used to map the structure into Memory or I/O Space.
+ Legal values are 0 - 5.
+ BAR offset is calculated as
+\emph on
+BAR
+\emph default
+ = 10h + 4 *
+\emph on
+BIR.
+\end_layout
+
+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320781002
+
+\emph on
+Offset
+\emph default
+ - Used as an offset from the address contained by one of the function’s
+ Base Address registers to point to the base of the structure.
+ Depending on the structure, the lower bits are masked off (set to zero)
+ by software to form an aligned offset.
+\end_layout
+
+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320785098
+A single device has multiple virtio capabilities on the PCI capability linked-li
+st.
+ To locate a specific register, driver scans the PCI capability list looking
+ for capabilities using the vendor specific
+\emph on
+Capability ID
+\emph default
+, that is
+\emph on
+Capability ID
+\emph default
+ value
+\emph on
+9
+\emph default
+, according to the PCI spec.
+ For each capability, it verifies that the
+\emph on
+Capability Length
+\emph default
+ field matches the expected value (12) - if it doesn't, this indicates a
+ layout change, which causes driver to ignore the specific PCI capability
+ and proceed to the next PCI capability in the list.
+ Next,
+\emph on
+ Structure ID
+\emph default
+ single-byte field is read at offset 3.
+ Unrecognized
+\emph on
+Structure ID
+\emph default
+ values are ignored.
+ Low bits in the
+\emph on
+Offset
+\emph default
+ register are masked to match alignment requirements, if any.
+ Device drivers are recommended to sanity check
+\emph on
+BIR
+\emph default
+,
+\emph on
+Offset
+\emph default
+, and
+\emph on
+Size
+\emph default
+ fields, ignoring the capability or failing gracefully on error.
+ Drivers are also recommended to only map part of configuration structure
+ large enough for device operation.
+\end_layout
+
+\begin_layout Standard
+
+\change_inserted 1986246365 1320786035
+For backwards compatibility, devices should also present legacy configuration
+ space in the first I/O region of the PCI device, mirroring virtio configuration
+ structures in this space.
+ Drivers should fall back on this legacy structure if a specific Virtio
+ Structure capability is missing in the PCI capability list.
+ However, devices are not required to map the whole configuration structure
+ in legacy space - only the initial segment expected by legacy drivers needs
+ to be mapped.
+ The minimal size of such legacy segment size, for each structure, is listed
+ below.
