[PATCH 4.19 136/190] kvm: Check irqchip mode before assign irqfd

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Sep 13 2019 - 09:17:47 EST

[ Upstream commit 654f1f13ea56b92bacade8ce2725aea0457f91c0 ]

When assigning kvm irqfd we didn't check the irqchip mode but we allow
KVM_IRQFD to succeed with all the irqchip modes. However it does not
make much sense to create irqfd even without the kernel chips. Let's
provide a arch-dependent helper to check whether a specific irqfd is
allowed by the arch. At least for x86, it should make sense to check:

- when irqchip mode is NONE, all irqfds should be disallowed, and,

- when irqchip mode is SPLIT, irqfds that are with resamplefd should
be disallowed.

For either of the case, previously we'll silently ignore the irq or
the irq ack event if the irqchip mode is incorrect. However that can
cause misterious guest behaviors and it can be hard to triage. Let's
fail KVM_IRQFD even earlier to detect these incorrect configurations.
