[PATCH v14 00/22] Add Mediated device support

From: Kirti Wankhede
Date: Wed Nov 16 2016 - 15:45:25 EST

This series adds Mediated device support to Linux host kernel. Purpose
of this series is to provide a common interface for mediated device
management that can be used by different devices. This series introduces
Mdev core module that creates and manages mediated devices, VFIO based
driver for mediated devices that are created by mdev core module and
update VFIO type1 IOMMU module to support pinning & unpinning for mediated

What changed v13-> v14?
- Added retries to notify DMA_UNMAP, if pfn_list is not empty.
- Added BUG_ON if pages are not unpined during DMA_UNMAP after 10 retries.
- Removed unpinning from detach_group() and release() and added WARN_ON
if pfn_list is not empty.
- Updated page accounting logic.

Tested by assigning below combinations of devices to a single VM:
- GPU pass through only
- vGPU device only
- One GPU pass through and one vGPU device
- Linux VM hot plug and unplug vGPU device while GPU pass through device
- Linux VM hot plug and unplug GPU pass through device while vGPU device

Tested with Linux-next upto commit e76d21c40bd6.
