Subject: [PATCH v11 00/18] virtio/vsock: introduce SOCK_SEQPACKET support

	This patchset implements support of SOCK_SEQPACKET for virtio
	As SOCK_SEQPACKET guarantees to save record boundaries, so to
do it, new bit for field 'flags' was added: SEQ_EOR. This bit is
set to 1 in last RW packet of message.
	Now as  packets of one socket are not reordered neither on vsock
nor on vhost transport layers, such bit allows to restore original
message on receiver's side. If user's buffer is smaller than message
length, when all out of size data is dropped.
	Maximum length of datagram is limited by 'peer_buf_alloc' value.
	Implementation also supports 'MSG_TRUNC' flags.
	Tests also implemented.

	Thanks to for encouragements and initial design

 v10 -> v11:
 General changelog:
  - now data is copied to user's buffer only when
    whole message is received.
  - reader is woken up when EOR packet is received.
  - if read syscall was interrupted by signal or
    timeout, error is returned(not 0).

 Per patch changelog:
  see every patch after '---' line.

 v9 -> v10:
 General changelog:
 - patch for write serialization removed from patchset.
 - commit messages rephrased

 v8 -> v9:
 General changelog:

 v7 -> v8:
 General changelog:
 - whole idea is simplified: channel now considered reliable,
   so SEQ_BEGIN, SEQ_END, 'msg_len' and 'msg_id' were removed.
   Only thing that is used to mark end of message is bit in
   'flags' field of packet header: VIRTIO_VSOCK_SEQ_EOR. Packet
   with such bit set to 1 means, that this is last packet of

 - POSIX MSG_EOR support is removed, as there is no exact
   description how it works.

 - all changes to 'include/uapi/linux/virtio_vsock.h' moved
   to dedicated patch, as these changes linked with patch to

 - patch 'virtio/vsock: SEQPACKET feature bit support' now merged
   to 'virtio/vsock: setup SEQPACKET ops for transport'.

 - patch 'vhost/vsock: SEQPACKET feature bit support' now merged
   to 'vhost/vsock: setup SEQPACKET ops for transport'.

 Per patch changelog:
  see every patch after '---' line.

 v6 -> v7:
 General changelog:
 - virtio transport callback for message length now removed
   from transport. Length of record is returned by dequeue

 - function which tries to get message length now returns 0
   when rx queue is empty. Also length of current message in
   progress is set to 0, when message processed or error

 - patches for virtio feature bit moved after patches with
   transport ops.

 Per patch changelog:
  see every patch after '---' line.

 v5 -> v6:
 General changelog:
 - virtio transport specific callbacks which send SEQ_BEGIN or
   SEQ_END now hidden inside virtio transport. Only enqueue,
   dequeue and record length callbacks are provided by transport.

 - virtio feature bit for SEQPACKET socket support introduced:

 - 'msg_cnt' field in 'struct virtio_vsock_seq_hdr' renamed to
   'msg_id' and used as id.

 Per patch changelog:
 - 'af_vsock: separate wait data loop':
    1) Commit message updated.
    2) 'prepare_to_wait()' moved inside while loop(thanks to
      Jorgen Hansen).
    Marked 'Reviewed-by' with 1), but as 2) I removed R-b.

 - 'af_vsock: separate receive data loop': commit message
    Marked 'Reviewed-by' with that fix.

 - 'af_vsock: implement SEQPACKET receive loop': style fixes.

 - 'af_vsock: rest of SEQPACKET support':
    1) 'module_put()' added when transport callback check failed.
    2) Now only 'seqpacket_allow()' callback called to check
       support of SEQPACKET by transport.

 - 'af_vsock: update comments for stream sockets': commit message
    Marked 'Reviewed-by' with that fix.

 - 'virtio/vsock: set packet's type in send':
    1) Commit message updated.
    2) Parameter 'type' from 'virtio_transport_send_credit_update()'
       also removed in this patch instead of in next.

 - 'virtio/vsock: dequeue callback for SOCK_SEQPACKET': SEQPACKET
    related state wrapped to special struct.

 - 'virtio/vsock: update trace event for SEQPACKET': format strings
    now not broken by new lines.

 v4 -> v5:
 - patches reorganized:
   1) Setting of packet's type in 'virtio_transport_send_pkt_info()'
      is moved to separate patch.
   2) Simplifying of 'virtio_transport_send_credit_update()' is
      moved to separate patch and before main virtio/vsock patches.
 - style problem fixed
 - in 'af_vsock: separate receive data loop' extra 'release_sock()'
 - added trace event fields for SEQPACKET
 - in 'af_vsock: separate wait data loop':
   1) 'vsock_wait_data()' removed 'goto out;'
   2) Comment for invalid data amount is changed.
 - in 'af_vsock: rest of SEQPACKET support', 'new_transport' pointer
   check is moved after 'try_module_get()'
 - in 'af_vsock: update comments for stream sockets', 'connect-oriented'
   replaced with 'connection-oriented'
 - in 'loopback/vsock: setup SEQPACKET ops for transport',
   'loopback/vsock' replaced with 'vsock/loopback'

 v3 -> v4:
 - SEQPACKET specific metadata moved from packet header to payload
   and called 'virtio_vsock_seq_hdr'
 - record integrity check:
   1) SEQ_END operation was added, which marks end of record.
   2) Both SEQ_BEGIN and SEQ_END carries counter which is incremented
      on every marker send.
 - af_vsock.c: socket operations for STREAM and SEQPACKET call same
   functions instead of having own "gates" differs only by names:
   'vsock_seqpacket/stream_getsockopt()' now replaced with
 - af_vsock.c: 'seqpacket_dequeue' callback returns error and flag that
   record ready. There is no need to return number of copied bytes,
   because case when record received successfully is checked at virtio
   transport layer, when SEQ_END is processed. Also user doesn't need
   number of copied bytes, because 'recv()' from SEQPACKET could return
   error, length of users's buffer or length of whole record(both are
   known in af_vsock.c).
 - af_vsock.c: both wait loops in af_vsock.c(for data and space) moved
   to separate functions because now both called from several places.
 - af_vsock.c: 'vsock_assign_transport()' checks that 'new_transport'
   pointer is not NULL and returns 'ESOCKTNOSUPPORT' instead of 'ENODEV'
   if failed to use transport.
 - tools/testing/vsock/vsock_test.c: rename tests

 v2 -> v3:
 - patches reorganized: split for prepare and implementation patches
 - local variables are declared in "Reverse Christmas tree" manner
 - virtio_transport_common.c: valid leXX_to_cpu() for vsock header
   fields access
 - af_vsock.c: 'vsock_connectible_*sockopt()' added as shared code
   between stream and seqpacket sockets.
 - af_vsock.c: loops in '__vsock_*_recvmsg()' refactored.
 - af_vsock.c: 'vsock_wait_data()' refactored.

 v1 -> v2:
 - patches reordered: af_vsock.c related changes now before virtio vsock
 - patches reorganized: more small patches, where +/- are not mixed
 - tests for SOCK_SEQPACKET added
 - all commit messages updated
 - af_vsock.c: 'vsock_pre_recv_check()' inlined to
 - af_vsock.c: 'vsock_assign_transport()' returns ENODEV if transport
   was not found
 - virtio_transport_common.c: transport callback for seqpacket dequeue
 - virtio_transport_common.c: simplified
 - virtio_transport_common.c: send reset on socket and packet type
