Subject[PATCH 0/2] page hinting add passthrough support
Date
From: wei qi <weiqi4@huawei.com>


I just implemented dynamically updating the iommu table to support pass-through,
It seen to work fine.

Test:
start a 4G vm with 2M hugetlb and ixgbevf passthrough,
GuestOS: linux-5.2.6 + (mm / virtio: Provide support for free page reporting)
HostOS: 5.5-rc4
Host: Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6161 CPU @ 2.20GHz

after enable page hinting, free pages at GuestOS can be free at host.


before,
# cat /sys/devices/system/node/node*/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/free_hugepages
5620
5620
after start VM,
# numastat -c qemu

Per-node process memory usage (in MBs)
PID Node 0 Node 1 Total
--------------- ------ ------ -----
24463 (qemu_hotr 6 6 12
24479 (qemu_tls_ 0 8 8
70718 (qemu-syst 58 539 597
--------------- ------ ------ -----
Total 64 553 616
# cat /sys/devices/system/node/node*/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/free_hugepages
5595
5366

the modify at qemu,
+int kvm_discard_range(struct kvm_discard_msg discard_msg)
+{
+ return kvm_vm_ioctl(kvm_state, KVM_DISCARD_RANGE, &discard_msg);
+}

static void virtio_balloon_handle_report(VirtIODevice *vdev, VirtQueue *vq)
{
..................
+ discard_msg.in_addr = elem->in_addr[i];
+ discard_msg.iov_len = elem->in_sg[i].iov_len;

ram_block_discard_range(rb, ram_offset, size);
+ kvm_discard_range(discard_msg);

then, further test network bandwidth, performance seem ok.

Is there any hidden problem in this implementation?
And, is there plan to support pass-throughyour?

wei qi (2):
vfio: add mmap/munmap API for page hinting
KVM: add support for page hinting
