Subject[PATCH] KVM: Unlimit number of ioeventfd assignments for real
Date
Previously we've tried to unlimit ioeventfd creation (6ea34c9b78c1,
"kvm: exclude ioeventfd from counting kvm_io_range limit",
2013-06-04), because that can be easily done by fd limitations and
otherwise it can easily reach the current maximum of 1000 iodevices.
Meanwhile, we still use the counter to limit the maximum allowed kvm
io devices to be created besides ioeventfd.

6ea34c9b78c1 achieved that in most cases, however it'll still fali the
ioeventfd creation when non-ioeventfd io devices overflows to 1000.
Then the next ioeventfd creation will fail while logically it should
be the next non-ioeventfd iodevice creation to fail.

That's not really a big problem at all because when it happens it
probably means something has leaked in userspace (or even malicious
program) so it's a bug to fix there. However the error message like
"ioeventfd creation failed" with an -ENOSPACE is really confusing and
may let people think about the fact that it's the ioeventfd that is
leaked (while in most cases it's not!).

Let's use this patch to unlimit the creation of ioeventfd for real
this time, assuming this is also a bugfix of 6ea34c9b78c1. To me more
importantly, when with a bug in userspace this patch can probably give
us another more meaningful failure on what has overflowed/leaked
rather than "ioeventfd creation failure: -ENOSPC".
