Subject[PATCH V5 XRT Alveo 00/20] XRT Alveo driver overview
Date
Hello,

This is V5 of patch series which adds management physical function driver
for Xilinx Alveo PCIe accelerator cards.
https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/alveo.html

This driver is part of Xilinx Runtime (XRT) open source stack.

XILINX ALVEO PLATFORM ARCHITECTURE

Alveo PCIe FPGA based platforms have a static *shell* partition and a
partial re-configurable *user* partition. The shell partition is
automatically loaded from flash when host is booted and PCIe is enumerated
by BIOS. Shell cannot be changed till the next cold reboot. The shell
exposes two PCIe physical functions:

1. management physical function
2. user physical function

The patch series includes Documentation/xrt.rst which describes Alveo
platform, XRT driver architecture and deployment model in more detail.

Users compile their high level design in C/C++/OpenCL or RTL into FPGA
image using Vitis tools.
https://www.xilinx.com/products/design-tools/vitis/vitis-platform.html

The compiled image is packaged as xclbin which contains partial bitstream
for the user partition and necessary metadata. Users can dynamically swap
the image running on the user partition in order to switch between
different workloads by loading different xclbins.

XRT DRIVERS FOR XILINX ALVEO

XRT Linux kernel driver *xrt-mgnt* binds to management physical function of
Alveo platform. The modular driver framework is organized into several
platform drivers which primarily handle the following functionality:

1. Loading firmware container also called xsabin at driver attach time
2. Loading of user compiled xclbin with FPGA Manager integration
3. Clock scaling of image running on user partition
4. In-band sensors: temp, voltage, power, etc.
5. Device reset and rescan

The platform drivers are packaged into *xrt-lib* helper module with well
defined interfaces. The module provides a pseudo-bus implementation for the
platform drivers. More details on the driver model can be found in
Documentation/xrt.rst.

User physical function driver is not included in this patch series.

LIBFDT REQUIREMENT

XRT driver infrastructure uses Device Tree as a metadata format to discover
HW subsystems in the Alveo PCIe device. The Device Tree schema used by XRT
is documented in Documentation/xrt.rst.

TESTING AND VALIDATION

xrt-mgnt driver can be tested with full XRT open source stack which
includes user space libraries, board utilities and (out of tree) first
generation user physical function driver xocl. XRT open source runtime
stack is available at https://github.com/Xilinx/XRT

Complete documentation for XRT open source stack including sections on
Alveo/XRT security and platform architecture can be found here:

https://xilinx.github.io/XRT/master/html/security.html
https://xilinx.github.io/XRT/master/html/platforms_partitions.html

Changes since v4:
- Added xrt_bus_type and xrt_device. All sub devices were changed from
platform_bus_type/platform_device to xrt_bus_type/xrt_device.
- Renamed xrt-mgmt driver to xrt-mgnt driver.
- Replaced 'MGMT' with 'MGNT' and 'mgmt' with 'mgnt' in code and file names
- Moved pci function calls from infrastructure to xrt-mgnt driver.
- Renamed files: mgmt/main.c -> mgnt/xmgnt-main.c
mgmt/main-region.c -> mgnt/xmgnt-main-region.c
include/xmgmt-main.h -> include/xmgnt-main.h
mgmt/fmgr-drv.c -> mgnt/xrt-mgr.c
mgmt/fmgr.h -> mgnt/xrt-mgr.h
- Updated code base to include v4 code review comments.

Changes since v3:
- Leaf drivers use regmap-mmio to access hardware registers.
- Renamed driver module: xmgmt.ko -> xrt-mgmt.ko
- Renamed files: calib.[c|h] -> ddr_calibration.[c|h],
lib/main.[c|h] -> lib/lib-drv.[c|h],
mgmt/main-impl.h - > mgmt/xmgnt.h
- Updated code base to include v3 code review comments.

Changes since v2:
- Streamlined the driver framework into *xleaf*, *group* and *xroot*
- Updated documentation to show the driver model with examples
- Addressed kernel test robot errors
- Added a selftest for basic driver framework
- Documented device tree schema
- Removed need to export libfdt symbols

Changes since v1:
- Updated the driver to use fpga_region and fpga_bridge for FPGA
programming
- Dropped platform drivers not related to PR programming to focus on XRT
core framework
- Updated Documentation/fpga/xrt.rst with information on XRT core framework
- Addressed checkpatch issues
- Dropped xrt- prefix from some header files
