Subject[PATCH v5 00/17] s390x cpu model implementation
This patch set in combination with its kernel kvm patch set proposes an
implementation of S390 CPU models. The origin of this item is to provide
a means for management interfaces like libvirt to draw decisions if life
guest migration to a target hypervisor is reasonable.

A migration constraint is that a target hypervisor is capable to run a
guest with the same CPU model as the source hypervisor does. To
verify this condition, the administration interface employes the existing
QMP command "query-cpu-definitions" which returns a list of all currently
supported CPU models of a given host system. Together with the extension of
QMP command "query-cpus", the current CPU model of a guest is retrievable
and a conclusion can be drawn if a migration is possible.

A S390 CPU model is defined as a triple of machine type, CPU facility set
and IBC value. Each historic, current and future triple receives a name
composed of the machine type and its general availability counter. This name
forms the CPU model name (e.g.: "2817-ga2".)

With means of the Instruction Blocking Control feature (IBC), the instruction
set available to a given guest is limitable.




- common code patches moved to begin of series
- linux header related patch dropped as changes are already upstream
- ibc_range renamed to ibc and fac_list_mask renamed to fac_mask to
correspond with struct fields in linux header
- test for NULL skipped after strdup_s390_cpu_name()
- strdup_cpu_name() now also handles none cpu model case
- s390_cpu_compare_name() now uses strdup_cpu_name() as well
- omit runnable and is-default field from query-cpu-definitions
answer when they are false
- global variable cpu_models_used and routine s390_cpu_models_used()
- routine query-cpu-definitions has a common code path now
- CPU model none is always runnable and presented in answer of command
- live-migration-safe field added to QAPI type CpuDefinitionInfo
- cpu model aliases presented in query-cpu-definitions answer
- CPUState field accel_id added to represent the used accelerator (ACCEL_ID)
and initialized in cpu_generic_init()
- CPUState field model_name added to represent the used cpu model,
initialized in arch specific init function s390_cpu_initfn()
- QMP command query-cpus extended to display accelerator and CPU model
name of all CPUs
- QMP command query-cpu-model dropped in favor to query-cpus
- HMP command info cpus now displays CPU model and accelerator
- optional order field added to query-cpu-definitions

- qemu probe mode is gone now
- optional parameters 'accel' and 'machine' added to QMP query-cpu-definitions
- z13 related facilities added
- private build directory issue fixed

- using GTK-Doc style format now for function descriptions
- typo fixed (2/16)
- gen-facilties now used to generate cpu model specific facility lists
and the qemu side facility mask during build time (5/16)
- gen-facilities added to make magic (5/16)
- element of struct S390CPUMachineProps now statically in cpu class (6/16)
- element of struct S390CPUProcessorProps now statically in cpu class (6/16)
- facility list also static now (6/16)
- typo fixed (7/16)
- zBC12-ga1 model now active on zEC12-ga2 host (11/16)
- operations on facility lists use QEMU bitmap API now (11/16)
- routine s390_cpu_model_init() introduced, called during cpu object
realization to prepare the current accelarator (12/16) if a cpu
model was selected
- missing comment added in description of CpuModelInfo type (13/16)
- accelerator field now mandatory for "query-cpu-model" (13/16)
- sorted list related comment to "query-cpu-definitions" dropped in
commit message (13/16)
- comment for AccelCpuInfo type updated (13/16)
- routine s390_facility_test() factored out (15/16)

- QEMU-side facility list mask introduced: this allows to enable guest
facilities that are handled by instruction interception handlers
implemented on qemu side. Similar to the facilities enabled by means
of the KVM side facility list mask which are handled by kvm/kernel.
- Concept of soft facilities has been dropped
- Result type of QMP command query-cpu-definitions extended to hold
additional information beside the cpu model name including which
cpu model is runnable in current accelerator and machine context.
