Subject[PATCH 00/13] ibmvfc: initial MQ development
Recent updates in pHyp Firmware and VIOS releases provide new infrastructure
towards enabling Subordinate Command Response Queues (Sub-CRQs) such that each
Sub-CRQ is a channel backed by an actual hardware queue in the FC stack on the
partner VIOS. Sub-CRQs are registered with the firmware via hypercalls and then
negotiated with the VIOS via new Management Datagrams (MADs) for channel setup.

This initial implementation adds the necessary Sub-CRQ framework and implements
the new MADs for negotiating and assigning a set of Sub-CRQs to associated VIOS
HW backed channels. The event pool and locking still leverages the legacy single
queue implementation, and as such lock contention is problematic when increasing
the number of queues. However, this initial work demonstrates a 1.2x factor
increase in IOPs when configured with two HW queues despite lock contention.

Tyrel Datwyler (13):
ibmvfc: add vhost fields and defaults for MQ enablement
ibmvfc: define hcall wrapper for registering a Sub-CRQ
ibmvfc: add Subordinate CRQ definitions
ibmvfc: add alloc/dealloc routines for SCSI Sub-CRQ Channels
ibmvfc: add Sub-CRQ IRQ enable/disable routine
ibmvfc: add handlers to drain and complete Sub-CRQ responses
ibmvfc: define Sub-CRQ interrupt handler routine
ibmvfc: map/request irq and register Sub-CRQ interrupt handler
ibmvfc: implement channel enquiry and setup commands
ibmvfc: advertise client support for using hardware channels
ibmvfc: set and track hw queue in ibmvfc_event struct
ibmvfc: send commands down HW Sub-CRQ when channelized
ibmvfc: register Sub-CRQ handles with VIOS during channel setup
