Subject[KVM PATCH v4 0/2] irqfd
(Applies to kvm.git:7da2e3ba, plus you will also need Davide Libenzi's
eventfd_file_create() patch, which you can find here:

You can find my complete tree with kvm.git, Davide's patch, and this series


irqfd, v4

This series implements a mechanism called "irqfd". It lets you create
an eventfd based file-desriptor to inject interrupts to a kvm guest. For
more details, please see the prologue for patch 2/2.

[ Changelog:

*) Changed allocation model to create the new fd last, after
we get past the last potential error point by using Davide's
new eventfd_file_create interface (Al Viro, Davide Libenzi)
*) We no longer export sys_eventfd2() since it is replaced
functionally with eventfd_file_create();
*) Rebased to kvm.git:7da2e3ba

*) The kernel now allocates the eventfd (need to export sys_eventfd2)
*) Added a flags field for future expansion to kvm_irqfd()
*) We properly toggle the irq level 1+0.
*) We re-use the USERSPACE_SRC_ID instead of creating our own
*) Properly check for failures establishing a poll-table with eventfd
*) Fixed fd/file leaks on failure
*) Rebased to lateste kvm.git::41b76d8d04

*) Dropped notifier_chain based callbacks in favor of
wait_queue_t::func and file::poll based callbacks (Thanks to
Davide for the suggestion)

*) Initial release


We do not have a user of this interface in this series, though note
future version of virtual-bus (v4 and above) will be based on this.

Note that this series requires userspace patches for qemu-kvm.git, v3, which
you can find here:



Gregory Haskins (2):
kvm: add support for irqfd via eventfd-notification interface
eventfd: export eventfd interfaces for module use
