Subject[RFC v6 0/5] virtio: support packed ring
Hello everyone,

This RFC implements packed ring support in virtio driver.

Some functional tests have been done with Jason's
packed ring implementation in vhost (RFC v5):

Both of ping and netperf worked as expected.

- Refinements (for code and commit log);
- More tests and bug fixes if any;
- Send the formal patch set;

RFC v5 -> RFC v6:
- Avoid tracking addr/len/flags when DMA API isn't used (MST/Jason);
- Define wrap counter as bool (Jason);
- Use ALIGN() in vring_init_packed() (Jason);
- Avoid using pointer to track `next` in detach_buf_packed() (Jason);
- Add comments for barriers (Jason);
- Don't enable RING_PACKED on ccw for now (noticed by Jason);
- Refine the memory barrier in virtqueue_poll();
- Add a missing memory barrier in virtqueue_enable_cb_delayed_packed();
- Remove the hacks in virtqueue_enable_cb_prepare_packed();

RFC v4 -> RFC v5:
- Save DMA addr, etc in desc state (Jason);
- Track used wrap counter;

RFC v3 -> RFC v4:
- Make ID allocation support out-of-order (Jason);
- Various fixes for EVENT_IDX support;

RFC v2 -> RFC v3:
- Split into small patches (Jason);
- Add helper virtqueue_use_indirect() (Jason);
- Just set id for the last descriptor of a list (Jason);
- Calculate the prev in virtqueue_add_packed() (Jason);
- Fix/improve desc suppression code (Jason/MST);
- Refine the code layout for XXX_split/packed and wrappers (MST);
- Fix the comments and API in uapi (MST);
- Remove the BUG_ON() for indirect (Jason);
- Some other refinements and bug fixes;

RFC v1 -> RFC v2:
- Add indirect descriptor support - compile test only;
- Add event suppression supprt - compile test only;
- Move vring_packed_init() out of uapi (Jason, MST);
- Merge two loops into one in virtqueue_add_packed() (Jason);
- Split vring_unmap_one() for packed ring and split ring (Jason);
- Avoid using '%' operator (Jason);
- Rename free_head -> next_avail_idx (Jason);
- Add comments for virtio_wmb() in virtqueue_add_packed() (Jason);
- Some other refinements and bug fixes;


Tiwei Bie (5):
virtio: add packed ring definitions
virtio_ring: support creating packed ring
virtio_ring: add packed ring support
virtio_ring: add event idx support in packed ring
virtio_ring: enable packed ring
