Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] Drivers: hv: Move Hyper-V clock/timer code to separate clocksource driver
Date
This patch series moves Hyper-V clock/timer code to a separate Hyper-V
clocksource driver. Previously, Hyper-V clock/timer code and data
structures were mixed in with other Hyper-V code in the ISA independent
drivers/hv code as well as in arch dependent code. The new Hyper-V
clocksource driver is ISA independent, with a just few dependencies on
arch specific functions. The patch series does not change any behavior
or functionality -- it only reorganizes the existing code and fixes up
the linkages. A few places outside of Hyper-V code are fixed up to use
the new #include file structure.

This restructuring is in response to Marc Zyngier's review comments
on supporting Hyper-V running on ARM64, and is a good idea in general.
It increases the amount of code shared between the x86 and ARM64
architectures, and reduces the size of the new code for supporting
Hyper-V on ARM64. A new version of the Hyper-V on ARM64 patches will
follow once this clocksource restructuring is accepted.

The code is diff'ed against Linux 5.2.0-rc1-next-20190524.

Changes in v3:
* Removed boolean argument to hv_init_clocksource(). Always call
sched_clock_register, which is needed on ARM64 but a no-op on x86.
* Removed separate cpuhp setup in hv_stimer_alloc() and instead
directly call hv_stimer_init() and hv_stimer_cleanup() from
corresponding VMbus functions. This more closely matches original
code and avoids clocksource stop/restart problems on ARM64 when
VMbus code denies CPU offlining request.

Changes in v2:
* Revised commit short descriptions so the distinction between
the first and second patches is clearer [GregKH]
* Renamed new clocksource driver files and functions to use
existing "timer" and "stimer" names instead of introducing
"syntimer". [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
* Introduced CONFIG_HYPER_TIMER to fix build problem when
CONFIG_HYPERV=m [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
* Added "Suggested-by: Marc Zyngier"
