Subject[RFC PATCH 00/10] vfio: Device memory DMA mapping improvements
This is a re-implementation of [1] following suggestions and code from
Jason Gunthorpe. This is lightly tested but seems functional and
throws no lockdep warnings. In this series we tremendously simplify
zapping of vmas mapping device memory using unmap_mapping_range(), we
create a protocol for looking up a vfio_device from a vma and provide
an interface to get a reference from that vma, using that device
reference, the caller can register a notifier for the device to
trigger on events such as device release. This notifier is only
enabled here for vfio-pci, but both the vma policy and the notifier
trigger should be trivial to add to any vfio bus driver after RFC.

Does this look more like the direction we should go?

Note that like the last series we're still not dropping DMA mappings
on device memory disable as this would likely break userspace in some
instances, we don't have IOMMU interfaces to modify protection bits,
and it's not clear an IOMMU fault is absolutely better than the bus
error. Thanks,



Alex Williamson (10):
vfio: Create vfio_fs_type with inode per device
vfio: Update vfio_add_group_dev() API
vfio: Export unmap_mapping_range() wrapper
vfio/pci: Use vfio_device_unmap_mapping_range()
vfio: Create a vfio_device from vma lookup
vfio: Add a device notifier interface
vfio/pci: Notify on device release
vfio/type1: Refactor pfn_list clearing
vfio/type1: Pass iommu and dma objects through to vaddr_get_pfn
vfio/type1: Register device notifier
