Subject[RFC V4 PATCH 0/8] Packed ring layout for vhost
Hi all:

This RFC implement packed ring layout. The code were tested with
Tiwei's RFC V3 a Some fixups and
tweaks were needed on top of Tiwei's code to make it run for event

Pktgen reports about 20% improvement on PPS (event index is off). More
testing is ongoing.

Notes for tester:

- Start from this version, vhost need qemu co-operation to work
correctly. Or you can comment out the packed specific code for

Changes from V3:
- Fix math on event idx checking
- Sync last avail wrap counter through GET/SET_VRING_BASE
- remove desc_event prefix in the driver/device structure

Changes from V2:
- do not use & in checking desc_event_flags
- off should be most significant bit
- remove the workaround of mergeable buffer for dpdk prototype
- id should be in the last descriptor in the chain
- keep _F_WRITE for write descriptor when adding used
- device flags updating should use ADDR_USED type
- return error on unexpected unavail descriptor in a chain
- return false in vhost_ve_avail_empty is descriptor is available
- track last seen avail_wrap_counter
- correctly examine available descriptor in get_indirect_packed()
- vhost_idx_diff should return u16 instead of bool

Changes from V1:

- Refactor vhost used elem code to avoid open coding on used elem
- Event suppression support (compile test only).
- Indirect descriptor support (compile test only).
- Zerocopy support.
- vIOMMU support.
- SCSI/VSOCK support (compile test only).
- Fix several bugs

Jason Wang (8):
vhost: move get_rx_bufs to vhost.c
vhost: hide used ring layout from device
vhost: do not use vring_used_elem
vhost_net: do not explicitly manipulate vhost_used_elem
vhost: vhost_put_user() can accept metadata type
virtio: introduce packed ring defines
vhost: packed ring support
vhost: event suppression for packed ring
