Subject[PATCH v9 00/26] arm64: provide pseudo NMI with GICv3
Date
Hi,

This series is a continuation of the work started by Daniel [1]. The goal
is to use GICv3 interrupt priorities to simulate an NMI.

The patches depend on the core API for NMIs patches [2]. Both series can
be found on this branch:
git clone http://linux-arm.org/linux-jt.git -b v5.0-pseudo-nmi

To achieve this, set two priorities, one for standard interrupts and
another, higher priority, for NMIs. Whenever we want to disable interrupts,
we mask the standard priority instead so NMIs can still be raised. Some
corner cases though still require to actually mask all interrupts
effectively disabling the NMI.

Daniel Thompson ran some benchmarks [3] on a previous version showing a
small (<1%) performance drop when using interrupt priorities on Cortex-A53
and GIC-500.

Currently, only PPIs and SPIs can be set as NMIs. IPIs being currently
hardcoded IRQ numbers, there isn't a generic interface to set SGIs as NMI
for now. LPIs being controlled by the ITS cannot be delivered as NMI.
When an NMI is active on a CPU, no other NMI can be triggered on the CPU.

Requirements to use this:
- Have GICv3
- SCR_EL3.FIQ is set to 1 when linux runs or have single security state
- Select Kernel Feature -> Support for NMI-like interrupts
- Provide "enable_pseudo_nmi" on the kernel command line


* Patch 1 fixes an existing issue with current NMI contexts in arm64
* Patches 2 and 3 are just a bit of cleanup
* Patch 4 introduces a CPU feature to check if priority masking should be
used
* Patches 5 and 6 add the support for priority masking in GICv3 driver
* Patches 7 to 13 add the support for priority masking the arch/arm64
code
* Patches 14 and 15 allow us to apply alternatives earlier in the boot
process
* Patches 16 to 18 starts the PMR masking on cpu startup and provides
primitives for arm64 GICv3 driver to perform priority masking
* Patches 19 to 22 Add support for pseudo-NMIs in GICv3 driver
* Patches 23 to 25 Add support for receiving NMIs in arch/arm64
* Patch 26 adds the build config and command line option to enable
pseudo-NMIs


Changes since v8[4]:
* Rebase on v5.0-rc3
* Add Acked-by and Reviewed-by tags
* Simplify arch_local_save_flags code
* Fix issue in cpufeature when enabling early alternatives
