From: Yan Zhao
Date: Sun May 05 2019 - 21:53:22 EST

This patchset introduces a version attribute under sysfs of VFIO Mediated

This version attribute is used to check whether two mdev devices are
user space software can take advantage of this version attribute to
determine whether to launch live migration between two mdev devices.

Patch 1 defines version attribute in Documentation/vfio-mediated-device.txt

Patch 2 uses GVT as an example to show how to expose version attribute and
check device compatibility in vendor driver.

1. renamed patched 1
2. made definition of device version string completely private to vendor
3. abandoned changes to sample mdev drivers
4. described intent and usage of version attribute more clearly.

vfio/mdev: add version attribute for mdev device
drm/i915/gvt: export mdev device version to sysfs for Intel vGPU
