Subject[PATCH v2 00/10] kvm: memory slot cleanups, fix, and increase
From
Date
v2: Update 02/10 to not check userspace_addr when slot is removed.
Yoshikawa-san withdrew objection to increase slot_bitmap prior
to his series to remove slot_bitmap.

This series does away with any kind of complicated resizing of the
slot array and simply does a one time increase. I do compact struct
kvm_memory_slot a bit to take better advantage of the space we are
using. This reduces each slot from 64 bytes (x86_64) to 56 bytes.
By enforcing the API around valid operations for an unused slot and
fields that can be modified runtime, I found and was able to fix a
bug in iommu mapping for slots. The renames enabled me to find the
previously posted bug fix for catching slot overlaps.

As mentioned in the series, the primary motivation for increasing
memory slots is assigned devices. With this, I've been able to
assign 30 devices to a single VM and could have gone further, but
ran out of SRIOV VFs. Typical devices use anywhere from 2-4 slots
and max out at 8 slots. 125 user slots (3 private slots) allows
us to support between 28 and 56 typical devices per VM.

Tested on x86_64, compiled on ia64, powerpc, and s390.

Thanks,
Alex
