[PATCH v4 0/3] AER-KVM: Error containment of VFIO devices assigned to KVM guests

From: Vijay Mohan Pandarathil
Date: Thu Feb 14 2013 - 05:42:16 EST

Add support for error containment when a VFIO device assigned to a KVM
guest encounters an error. This is for PCIe devices/drivers that support AER
functionality. When the host OS is notified of an error in a device either
through the firmware first approach or through an interrupt handled by the AER
root port driver, the error handler registered by the vfio-pci driver gets
invoked. The qemu process is signaled through an eventfd registered per
VFIO device by the qemu process. In the eventfd handler, qemu decides on
what action to take. In this implementation, guest is brought down to
contain the error.

- Stop the guest instead of terminating
- Remove unwanted returns from functions
- Incorporate other feedback
- Removed PCI_AER* flags from device info ioctl.
- Incorporated feedback
- Rebased to latest upstream stable bits
- Changed the new ioctl to be part of VFIO_SET_IRQs ioctl
- Added a new patch to get/put reference to a vfio device from struct device
- Incorporated all other feedback.
