Subject[PATCH v4 00/16] Introduce SCMI VirtIO transport
Hi all,

I'm posting this V4 series starting from the work done up to V3 by

I kept original autorship and mailing list distribution unchanged, even
though I'm not really sure if I'm allowed to post to all the original MLs.

The main aim of this rework is to simplify where possible the SCMI VirtIO
support added in V3 by adding upfront and then using some new mechanisms in
the SCMI Core Transport layer.

Indeed patches 01,02,03,04,05 add such additional mechanisms to the SCMI
core; these were previously posted separately in a distinct patchset, I
will retire that series and continue posting those here to ease testing.

In terms of rework I dropped original V3 patches 02,08,12 as no more needed
while keeping for now the rework distinct marking such patches as
[RFC][REWORK] in order to easily spot changes.
(they will be squashed into related original V3 patches next)

DT bindings patch has been ported on top of freshly YAML converted arm,scmi

Patch 16 adds support for polling mode to virtio-scmi.

Known/open issues in V4:

- possible violation by virtio-scmi transport of the order constraints on
correlated response/delayed_response messages: this will be addressed
next with changes in the SCMI core.

- probing sequence simplification (if possible)

As such this series is anyway still work in progress, needing also some
general cleanup.

Moreover SCMI core reworks about atomicity and polling, posted as a
distinct series, is not included here either (even though tested against)
and it will kept separate instead for now, to avoid mixing too much stuff
together since not strictly needed for this series.

This V4 series is based on top of next20210610 in order to include all the
recent DT YAML-conversion changes and all the fixes queued as of today in

The series has been tested using an emulated fake SCMI device and also a
proper SCP-fw stack running through QEMU vhost-users, with the SCMI stack
compiled, in both cases, as builtin and as s loadable module, running tests
against mocked SCMI Sensors using HWMON and IIO interfaces to check the
functionality of notifications and sync/async commands.

Any feedback/testing is welcome :D
