parentvmxnet3: Move PCI Id to pci_ids.h (diff)
IB: Add vmw_pvrdma driver
This patch series adds a driver for a paravirtual RDMA device. The device is developed for VMware's Virtual Machines and allows existing RDMA applications to continue to use existing Verbs API when deployed in VMs on ESXi. We recently did a presentation in the OFA Workshop [1] regarding this device. Description and RDMA Support ============================ The virtual device is exposed as a dual function PCIe device. One part is a virtual network device (VMXNet3) which provides networking properties like MAC, IP addresses to the RDMA part of the device. The networking properties are used to register GIDs required by RDMA applications to communicate. These patches add support and the all required infrastructure for letting applications use such a device. We support the mandatory Verbs API as well as the base memory management extensions (Local Inv, Send with Inv and Fast Register Work Requests). We currently support both Reliable Connected and Unreliable Datagram QPs but do not support Shared Receive Queues (SRQs). Also, we support the following types of Work Requests: o Send/Receive (with or without Immediate Data) o RDMA Write (with or without Immediate Data) o RDMA Read o Local Invalidate o Send with Invalidate o Fast Register Work Requests This version only adds support for version 1 of RoCE. We will add RoCEv2 support in a future patch. We do support registration of both MAC-based and IP-based GIDs. I have also created a git tree for our user-level driver [2]. Testing ======= We have tested this internally for various types of Guest OS - Red Hat, Centos, Ubuntu 12.04/14.04/16.04, Oracle Enterprise Linux, SLES 12 using backported versions of this driver. The tests included several runs of the performance tests (included with OFED), Intel MPI PingPong benchmark on OpenMPI, krping for FRWRs. Mellanox has been kind enough to test the backported version of the driver internally on their hardware using a VMware provided ESX build. I have also applied and tested this with Doug's k.o/for-4.9 branch (commit 5603910b). Note, that this patch series should be applied all together. I split out the commits so that it may be easier to review.
