Subject[RFC PATCH 00/22] Enhance VHOST to enable SoC-to-SoC communication
Date
This series enhances Linux Vhost support to enable SoC-to-SoC
communication over MMIO. This series enables rpmsg communication between
two SoCs using both PCIe RC<->EP and HOST1-NTB-HOST2

1) Modify vhost to use standard Linux driver model
2) Add support in vring to access virtqueue over MMIO
3) Add vhost client driver for rpmsg
4) Add PCIe RC driver (uses virtio) and PCIe EP driver (uses vhost) for
rpmsg communication between two SoCs connected to each other
5) Add NTB Virtio driver and NTB Vhost driver for rpmsg communication
between two SoCs connected via NTB
6) Add configfs to configure the components

UseCase1 :

VHOST RPMSG VIRTIO RPMSG

VHOST RPMSG VIRTIO RPMSG

| | | | | |
| | | | | |
| | | SoC With Multiple EP Instances | | |
| | | (Configured using NTB Function) | | |
| +-------------+ +-------------+ |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+

Software Layering:

The high-level SW layering should look something like below. This series
adds support only for RPMSG VHOST, however something similar should be
done for net and scsi. With that any vhost device (PCI, NTB, Platform
device, user) can use any of the vhost client driver.


+----------------+ +-----------+ +------------+ +----------+
| RPMSG VHOST | | NET VHOST | | SCSI VHOST | | X |
+-------^--------+ +-----^-----+ +-----^------+ +----^-----+
| | | |
| | | |

+-----------v-----------------v--------------v--------------v----------+
| VHOST CORE |
+--------^---------------^--------------------^------------------^-----+

+--------v-------+ +----v------+ +----------v----------+ +----v-----+
| PCI EPF VHOST | | NTB VHOST | |PLATFORM DEVICE VHOST| | X |
+----------------+ +-----------+ +---------------------+ +----------+
