Subject[PATCH V2 0/8] mdev based hardware virtio offloading support
Hi all:

There are hardware that can do virtio datapath offloading while having
its own control path. This path tries to implement a mdev based
unified API to support using kernel virtio driver to drive those
devices. This is done by introducing a new mdev transport for virtio
(virtio_mdev) and register itself as a new kind of mdev driver. Then
it provides a unified way for kernel virtio driver to talk with mdev
device implementation.

Though the series only contains kernel driver support, the goal is to
make the transport generic enough to support userspace drivers. This
means vhost-mdev[1] could be built on top as well by resuing the

A sample driver is also implemented which simulate a virito-net
loopback ethernet device on top of vringh + workqueue. This could be
used as a reference implementation for real hardware driver.

Consider mdev framework only support VFIO device and driver right now,
this series also extend it to support other types. This is done
through introducing class id to the device and pairing it with
id_talbe claimed by the driver. On top, this seris also decouple
device specific parents ops out of the common ones.

Pktgen test was done with virito-net + mvnet loop back device.

Please review.


Changes from V1:

- move virtio_mdev.c to drivers/virtio
- store class_id in mdev_device instead of mdev_parent
- store device_ops in mdev_device instead of mdev_parent
- reorder the patch, vringh fix comes first
- really silent compiling warnings
- really switch to use u16 for class_id
- uevent and modpost support for mdev class_id
- vraious tweaks per comments from Parav

Changes from RFC-V2:

- silent compile warnings on some specific configuration
- use u16 instead u8 for class id
- reseve MDEV_ID_VHOST for future vhost-mdev work
- introduce "virtio" type for mvnet and make "vhost" type for future
- add entries in MAINTAINER
- tweak and typos fixes in commit log

Changes from RFC-V1:

- rename device id to class id
- add docs for class id and device specific ops (device_ops)
- split device_ops into seperate headers
- drop the mdev_set_dma_ops()
- use device_ops to implement the transport API, then it's not a part
of UAPI any more
- use GFP_ATOMIC in mvnet sample device and other tweaks
- set_vring_base/get_vring_base support for mvnet device

Jason Wang (8):
vringh: fix copy direction of vringh_iov_push_kern()
mdev: class id support
mdev: bus uevent support
modpost: add support for mdev class id
mdev: introduce device specific ops
mdev: introduce virtio device and its device ops
virtio: introduce a mdev based transport
docs: sample driver to demonstrate how to implement virtio-mdev
