Subject: [PATCH 0/7] *** IRQ offloading for vDPA ***

Hi All,

This series intends to implement IRQ offloading for
vhost_vdpa.

By the feat of irq forwarding facilities like posted
interrupt on X86, irq bypass can  help deliver
interrupts to vCPU directly.

vDPA devices have dedicated hardware backends like VFIO
pass-throughed devices. So it would be possible to setup
irq offloading(irq bypass) for vDPA devices and gain
performance improvements.

In my testing, with this feature, we can save 0.1ms
in a ping between two VFs on average.


Zhu Lingshan (7):
  vhost: introduce vhost_call_ctx
  kvm/vfio: detect assigned device via irqbypass manager
  vhost_vdpa: implement IRQ offloading functions in vhost_vdpa
  vDPA: implement IRQ offloading helpers in vDPA core
  virtio_vdpa: init IRQ offloading function pointers to NULL.
  ifcvf: replace irq_request/free with helpers in vDPA core.
  irqbypass: do not start consumer or producer when failed to connect
