Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] drm/i915/gvt: subsitute kvm_read/write_guest with vfio_dma_rw
Date
As a device model, it is better to read/write guest memory using vfio
interface, so that vfio is able to maintain dirty info of device IOVAs.

Compared to kvm interfaces kvm_read/write_guest(), vfio_dma_rw() has ~600
cycles more overhead on average.

-------------------------------------
| interface | avg cpu cycles |
|-----------------------------------|
| kvm_write_guest | 1554 |
| ----------------------------------|
| kvm_read_guest | 707 |
|-----------------------------------|
| vfio_dma_rw(w) | 2274 |
|-----------------------------------|
| vfio_dma_rw(r) | 1378 |
-------------------------------------

Comparison of benchmarks scores are as blow:
------------------------------------------------------
| avg score | kvm_read/write_guest | vfio_dma_rw |
|----------------------------------------------------|
| Glmark2 | 1284 | 1296 |
|----------------------------------------------------|
| Lightsmark | 61.24 | 61.27 |
|----------------------------------------------------|
| OpenArena | 140.9 | 137.4 |
|----------------------------------------------------|
| Heaven | 671 | 670 |
------------------------------------------------------
No obvious performance downgrade found.
