I am not able to reproduce above call stack when virtio-blk is assigned 4 queues
while my qemu cmdline is "-smp 16,sockets=1,cores=8,threads=2".

# cat /sys/block/vda/mq/0/cpu_list
0, 1, 2, 3
# cat /sys/block/vda/mq/1/cpu_list
4, 5, 6, 7
# cat /sys/block/vda/mq/2/cpu_list
8, 9, 10, 11
# cat /sys/block/vda/mq/3/cpu_list
12, 13, 14, 15


I do agree in above case we would have issue if the mapping is established by
blk_mq_map_queues().


However, I am just curious how we finally reach at blk_mq_map_queues() from
blk_mq_alloc_tag_set()?

It should be something like:

blk_mq_alloc_tag_set()
-> blk_mq_update_queue_map()
-> if (set->ops->map_queues && !is_kdump_kernel())
return set->ops->map_queues(set);
-> else
return blk_mq_map_queues(&set->map[HCTX_TYPE_DEFAULT]);

Wouldn't we always have set->ops->map_queues = virtblk_map_queues()?

Or the execution reach at:

virtblk_map_queues()
-> blk_mq_virtio_map_queues()
-> if (!vdev->config->get_vq_affinity)
return blk_mq_map_queues(qmap);
-> else
establish the mapping via get_vq_affinity

but vdev->config->get_vq_affinity == NULL?

For virtio pci, get_vq_affinity is always set. Seems virtio mmio would not set
get_vq_affinity.


I used to play with firecracker (by amazon) and it is interesting firecracker
uses mmio to setup virtio-blk.


Sorry for disturbing the review of this patch. I just would like to clarify in
which scenario we would hit this issue, e.g., when virtio-blk is based on mmio?
