    Subject[PATCHSETS #2] KVM device passthrough support with AMD IOMMU

    the two patchsets posted as reply to this email implement KVM device
    passthrough support for AMD IOMMU hardware. The changes to the previous
    posts are descibed below

    The first patchset is version 4 of the generic iommu api patchset which
    generalizes the VT-d functions exported to KVM into a common api where
    the AMD IOMMU code can plug into. In this version the patchset was
    rebased to the latest post of Han Weidong's patches.

    The second patchset finally implements the KVM device passthrough
    support in the AMD IOMMU code. Together with KVM-79 I successfully
    passed an 10GBit network card into an KVM guest. In this version the
    patchset was changed to remove any device before a protection domain is
    freed instead of printing a BUG. Also the patchset was rebased to the
    updated IOMMU-API patches.

    These two patchsets apply in order in top of the latest post of
    Han Weidong's Multiple device assignement support patches. Anybody who
    wants to try this out can pull the whole stuff from

    git:// kvm-amd-iommu

    Please give these patches a good review.
