2011-09-29xen: use generic functions instead of xen_{alloc, free}_vm_area()David Vrabel1-1/+0
Replace calls to the Xen-specific xen_alloc_vm_area() and xen_free_vm_area() functions with the generic equivalent (alloc_vm_area() and free_vm_area()). On x86, these were identical already.

2011-09-29xen: modify kernel mappings corresponding to granted pagesStefano Stabellini1-0/+1
If we want to use granted pages for AIO, changing the mappings of a user vma and the corresponding p2m is not enough, we also need to update the kernel mappings accordingly. Currently this is only needed for pages that are created for user usages through /dev/xen/gntdev. As in, pages that have been in use by the kernel and use the P2M will not need this special mapping. However there are no guarantees that in the future the kernel won't start accessing pages through the 1:1 even for internal usage. In order to avoid the complexity of dealing with highmem, we allocated the pages lowmem. We issue a HYPERVISOR_grant_table_op right away in m2p_add_override and we remove the mappings using another HYPERVISOR_grant_table_op in m2p_remove_override. Considering that m2p_add_override and m2p_remove_override are called once per page we use multicalls and hypercall batching. Use the kmap_op pointer directly as argument to do the mapping as it is guaranteed to be present up until the unmapping is done. Before issuing any unmapping multicalls, we need to make sure that the mapping has already being done, because we need the kmap->handle to be set correctly.

2011-01-11xen: introduce gnttab_map_refs and gnttab_unmap_refsStefano Stabellini1-0/+5
gnttab_map_refs maps some grant refs and uses the new m2p override to set a proper m2p mapping for the granted pages. gnttab_unmap_refs unmaps the granted refs and removes th mappings from the m2p override.

Impact: hypercall definitions These functions populate the gnttab data structures used by the granttab map and unmap ops and are used in the backend drivers.

2010-07-22xen: Xen PCI platform device driver.Stefano Stabellini1-0/+4
Add the xen pci platform device driver that is responsible for initializing the grant table and xenbus in PV on HVM mode. Few changes to xenbus and grant table are necessary to allow the delayed initialization in HVM mode. Grant table needs few additional modifications to work in HVM mode. The Xen PCI platform device raises an irq every time an event has been delivered to us. However these interrupts are only delivered to vcpu 0. The Xen PCI platform interrupt handler calls xen_hvm_evtchn_do_upcall that is a little wrapper around __xen_evtchn_do_upcall, the traditional Xen upcall handler, the very same used with traditional PV guests. When running on HVM the event channel upcall is never called while in progress because it is a normal Linux irq handler (and we cannot switch the irq chip wholesale to the Xen PV ones as we are running QEMU and might have passed in PCI devices), therefore we cannot be sure that evtchn_upcall_pending is 0 when returning. For this reason if evtchn_upcall_pending is set by Xen we need to loop again on the event channels set pending otherwise we might loose some event channel deliveries.

2008-05-27xen: implement save/restoreJeremy Fitzhardinge1-0/+3
This patch implements Xen save/restore and migration. Saving is triggered via xenbus, which is polled in drivers/xen/manage.c. When a suspend request comes in, the kernel prepares itself for saving by: 1 - Freeze all processes. This is primarily to prevent any partially-completed pagetable updates from confusing the suspend process. If CONFIG_PREEMPT isn't defined, then this isn't necessary. 2 - Suspend xenbus and other devices 3 - Stop_machine, to make sure all the other vcpus are quiescent. The Xen tools require the domain to run its save off vcpu0. 4 - Within the stop_machine state, it pins any unpinned pgds (under construction or destruction), performs canonicalizes various other pieces of state (mostly converting mfns to pfns), and finally 5 - Suspend the domain Restore reverses the steps used to save the domain, ending when all the frozen processes are thawed.

2008-04-24xen: make grant table arch portableIsaku Yamahata1-0/+6
split out x86 specific part from grant-table.c and allow ia64/xen specific initialization. ia64/xen grant table is based on pseudo physical address (guest physical address) unlike x86/xen. On ia64 init_mm doesn't map identity straight mapped area. ia64/xen specific grant table initialization is necessary.

2008-04-24xen: replace callers of alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() with xen_ prefixed oneIsaku Yamahata1-0/+1
Don't use alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() directly, instead define xen_alloc_vm_area()/xen_free_vm_area() and use them. alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() are used to allocate/free area which are for grant table mapping. Xen/x86 grant table is based on virtual address so that alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() are suitable. On the other hand Xen/ia64 (and Xen/powerpc) grant table is based on pseudo physical address (guest physical address) so that allocation should be done differently. The original version of xenified Linux/IA64 have its own allocate_vm_area()/free_vm_area() definitions which don't allocate vm area contradictory to those names. Now vanilla Linux already has its definitions so that it's impossible to have IA64 definitions of allocate_vm_area()/free_vm_area(). Instead introduce xen_allocate_vm_area()/xen_free_vm_area() and use them.

2007-07-18xen: Add grant table supportJeremy Fitzhardinge1-0/+107
Add Xen 'grant table' driver which allows granting of access to selected local memory pages by other virtual machines and, symmetrically, the mapping of remote memory pages which other virtual machines have granted access to. This driver is a prerequisite for many of the Xen virtual device drivers, which grant the 'device driver domain' restricted and temporary access to only those memory pages that are currently involved in I/O operations.
