Subject[PATCH v4 00/17] HSM driver for ACRN hypervisor
Date
From: Shuo Liu <shuo.a.liu@intel.com>

ACRN is a Type 1 reference hypervisor stack, running directly on the bare-metal
hardware, and is suitable for a variety of IoT and embedded device solutions.

ACRN implements a hybrid VMM architecture, using a privileged Service VM. The
Service VM manages the system resources (CPU, memory, etc.) and I/O devices of
User VMs. Multiple User VMs are supported, with each of them running Linux,
Android OS or Windows. Both Service VM and User VMs are guest VM.

Below figure shows the architecture.

There is only one Service VM which could run Linux as OS.

In a typical case, the Service VM will be auto started when ACRN Hypervisor is
booted. Then the ACRN userspace (an application running in Service VM) could be
used to start/stop User VMs by communicating with ACRN Hypervisor Service
Module (HSM).

ACRN Hypervisor Service Module (HSM) is a middle layer that allows the ACRN
userspace and Service VM OS kernel to communicate with ACRN Hypervisor
and manage different User VMs. This middle layer provides the following
functionalities,
- Issues hypercalls to the hypervisor to manage User VMs:
* VM/vCPU management
* Memory management
* Device passthrough
* Interrupts injection
- I/O requests handling from User VMs.
- Exports ioctl through HSM char device.
- Exports function calls for other kernel modules

ACRN is focused on embedded system. So it doesn't support some features.
E.g.,
- ACRN doesn't support VM migration.
- ACRN doesn't support vCPU migration.

This patch set adds the HSM to the Linux kernel.

The basic ARCN support was merged to upstream already.

ChangeLog:
v4:
- Used acrn_dev.this_device directly for dev_*() (Reinette)
- Removed the odd usage of {get|put}_device() on &acrn_dev->this_device (Greg)
- Removed unused log code. (Greg)
- Corrected the return error values. (Greg)
- Mentioned that HSM relies hypervisor for sanity check in acrn_dev_ioctl() comments (Greg)

v3:
- Used {get|put}_device() helpers on &acrn_dev->this_device
- Moved unused code from front patches to later ones.
- Removed self-defined pr_fmt() and dev_fmt()
- Provided comments for acrn_vm_list_lock.

v2:
- Removed API version related code. (Dave)
- Replaced pr_*() by dev_*(). (Greg)
- Used -ENOTTY as the error code of unsupported ioctl. (Greg)
