[RFC PATCH v4 00/13] riscv: Add vector ISA support

From: Greentime Hu
Date: Tue May 26 2020 - 03:02:52 EST

This patchset is based on Guo Ren's v3 patchset to add dynamic vlen vector
support for all different kinds of vector length in riscv. To make this
happened we defined a new __riscv_v_state in sigcontext to save the vector
related registers. The datap pointer will be allocated dynamically in
kernel space and it will be put right after the __riscv_v_state data
structure to save all the vector registers in signal handler stack for user
space. So does the implementation in ptrace, they will be saved in ubuf
in which we put the __riscv_v_state data structure and datap pointer right
after it for vector registers. This patchset also fixes several bugs for
vector lazy save/restore and vtype not saving issue. It also adds new CSR
support for vector based on the 0.9 vector spec and clean up some unused

This patchset is rebased to v5.7-rc4 and it is tested by running several
vector programs simultaneously. It also can get the correct ucontext_t in
signal handler and restore correct context after sigreturn. It is also
tested with ptrace() syscall to use PTRACE_GETREGSET/PTRACE_SETREGSET to
get/set the vector registers. I have tested vlen=128 and vlen=256 cases in
virt machine of qemu-system-riscv32 and qemu-system-riscv64 provided by
Zhiwei Lui.

Since the vector spec is under developing, there might still need some
changes. For example the vle.v/vse.v instructions will be replaced with
proper instructions. The reason that I don't replace the instruction in
this patchset is because that the Qemu doesn't fully support 0.9 spec yet.
I have no simulator to test. We also like to discuss the default setting of
MINSIGSTKSZ and SIGSTKSZ. They might also need to set a proper number. They
are 2048 and 8096 now. Since the stack in signal will be reserved for
ucontext and the vector registers might be larger and larger someday, these
two macros will need to be defined as a proper value or maybe we should
provide a better mechanism to provide user to get a better default signal
stack size.
