Subject[KVM PATCH v6 0/4] irqfd fixes and enhancements
(Applies to kvm.git/master:4631e094)

The following is the latest attempt to fix the races in irqfd/eventfd, as
well as restore DEASSIGN support. For more details, please read the patch

You can also find this applied as a git tree:

git pull git:// kvm/irqfd

For reviewing convenience, here is a link to the entire virt/kvm/eventfd.c
file after the patches are applied:;a=blob;f=virt/kvm/eventfd.c;h=409d9e160f1f85618a5e3772937b2721a249399a;hb=85cfd57e33dcaea29971513334ca003764653b21

As always, this series has been tested against the kvm-eventfd unit test, and
appears to be functioning properly. You can download this test here:

I've included version 4 of Davide's eventfd patch (ported to kvm.git) so
that its a complete reviewable series. Note, however, that there may be
later versions of his patch to consider for merging, so we should
coordinate with him.



*) Removed slow-work in favor of using a dedicated single-thread
*) Condensed cleanup path to always use deferred shutdown
*) Saved about 56 lines over v5, with the following diffstat:
