Subject[PATCH v3 0/5] I/O Hook: Trace h/w access and emulate h/w events
Date
Hi All,
This is the 3rd version of I/O Hook, a patch set aimed at intercepting
h/w access by the OS. Some examples of how it can be used:
1) To emulate h/w events (e.g. hotplug)
2) To inject h/w errors to the kernel
3) To trace h/w access by the OS for performance tuning or debugging.
Details of the examples can be found in Documentation/PCI/iohook.txt.

A set of user space tools using I/O Hook for various use cases will be hosted
on https://github.com/iohook. It initially contains inject-aer which takes the
trace event output of /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/ras/aer_event/ and
regenerate the same PCIE AER event so that PCIE AER can be easily tested.

Changes since v2:
- Added the hook for MSRs (can specify a cpu number)
- Can trigger IPI by a vector (so that exceptions can be emulated)
- Defined iohook_event as the trace event to trace h/w access. A new
attribute 'tc' can be defined for any Register Override for tracing
purpose.
