2010-05-03virtio-9p: Create a syntactic shortcut for the file-system pass-thruGautham R Shenoy1-0/+22
Currently the commandline to create a virtual-filesystem pass-through between the guest and the host is as follows: #qemu -fsdev fstype,id=ID,path=path/to/share \ -device virtio-9p-pci,fsdev=ID,mount_tag=tag \ This patch provides a syntactic short-cut to achieve the same as follows: #qemu -virtfs fstype,path=path/to/share,mount_tag=tag This will be internally expanded as: #qemu -fsdev fstype,id=tag,path=path/to/share, \ -device virtio-9p-pci,fsdev=tag,mount_tag=tag \ Signed-off-by: Gautham R Shenoy <ego@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>
2010-05-03virtio-9p: Create a commandline option -fsdevGautham R Shenoy1-0/+18
This patch creates a new command line option named -fsdev to hold any file system specific information. The option will currently hold the following attributes: -fsdev fstype id=id,path=path_to_share where fstype: Type of the file system. id: Identifier used to refer to this fsdev path: The path on the host that is identified by this fsdev.

2010-04-23Make qemu-config available for toolsKevin Wolf1-17/+0
To be able to use config files for blkdebug, we need to make these functions available in the tools. This involves moving two functions that can only be built in the context of the emulator. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>
2010-04-23qemu-config: Make qemu_config_parse more genericKevin Wolf1-6/+12
qemu_config_parse gets the option groups as a parameter now instead of hardcoding the VM configuration groups. This way it can be used for other configurations, too. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>
2010-04-23qemu-config: qemu_read_config_file() reads the normal config fileKevin Wolf1-0/+15
Introduce a new function qemu_read_config_file which reads the VM configuration from a config file. Unlike qemu_config_parse it doesn't take a open file but a filename and reduces code duplication as a side effect. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>

Next commit wants to use it.
2010-03-16qemu-option: Move the implied first name into QemuOptsListMarkus Armbruster1-0/+5
We sometimes permit omitting the first option name, for example -device foo is short for -device driver=foo. The name to use ("driver" in the example) is passed as argument to qemu_opts_parse(). For each QemuOptsList, we use at most one such name. Move the name into QemuOptsList, and pass whether to permit the abbreviation. This ensures continued consistency, and simplifies the commit after next in this series.

2010-03-16error: Track locations in configuration filesMarkus Armbruster1-11/+17
New LOC_FILE. Use it for tracking file name and line number in qemu_config_parse(). We now report errors like qemu:foo.conf:42: Did not find I2C bus for smbus-eeprom In particular, gems like this message: -device: no driver specified become almost nice now: qemu:foo.conf:44: -device: no driver specified (A later commit will get rid of the bogus -device:)
2010-03-16error: Replace qemu_error() by error_report()Markus Armbruster1-5/+5
error_report() terminates the message with a newline. Strip it it from its arguments. This fixes a few error messages lacking a newline: net_handle_fd_param()'s "No file descriptor named %s found", and tap_open()'s "vnet_hdr=1 requested, but no kernel support for IFF_VNET_HDR available" (all three versions). There's one place that passes arguments without newlines intentionally: load_vmstate(). Fix it up.

2010-02-22Add cpu model configuration support..john cooper1-0/+49
This is a reimplementation of prior versions which adds the ability to define cpu models for contemporary processors. The added models are likewise selected via -cpu <name>, and are intended to displace the existing convention of "-cpu qemu64" augmented with a series of feature flags. A primary motivation was determination of a least common denominator within a given processor class to simplify guest migration. It is still possible to modify an arbitrary model via additional feature flags however the goal here was to make doing so unnecessary in typical usage. The other consideration was providing models names reflective of current processors. Both AMD and Intel have reviewed the models in terms of balancing generality of migration vs. excessive feature downgrade relative to released silicon. This version of the patch replaces the prior hard wired definitions with a configuration file approach for new models. Existing models are thus far left as-is but may easily be transitioned to (or may be overridden by) the configuration file representation. Proposed new model definitions are provided here for current AMD and Intel processors. Each model consists of a name used to select it on the command line (-cpu <name>), and a model_id which corresponds to a least common denominator commercial instance of the processor class. A table of names/model_ids may be queried via "-cpu ?model": : x86 Opteron_G3 AMD Opteron 23xx (Gen 3 Class Opteron) x86 Opteron_G2 AMD Opteron 22xx (Gen 2 Class Opteron) x86 Opteron_G1 AMD Opteron 240 (Gen 1 Class Opteron) x86 Nehalem Intel Core i7 9xx (Nehalem Class Core i7) x86 Penryn Intel Core 2 Duo P9xxx (Penryn Class Core 2) x86 Conroe Intel Celeron_4x0 (Conroe/Merom Class Core 2) : Also added is "-cpu ?dump" which exhaustively outputs all config data for all defined models, and "-cpu ?cpuid" which enumerates all qemu recognized CPUID feature flags. The pseudo cpuid flag 'check' when added to the feature flag list will warn when feature flags (either implicit in a cpu model or explicit on the command line) would have otherwise been quietly unavailable to a guest: # qemu-system-x86_64 ... -cpu Nehalem,check warning: host cpuid 0000_0001 lacks requested flag 'sse4.2|sse4_2' [0x00100000] warning: host cpuid 0000_0001 lacks requested flag 'popcnt' [0x00800000] A similar 'enforce' pseudo flag exists which in addition to the above causes qemu to error exit if requested flags are unavailable. Configuration data for a cpu model resides in the target config file which by default will be installed as: /usr/local/etc/qemu/target-<arch>.conf The format of this file should be self explanatory given the definitions for the above six models and essentially mimics the structure of the static x86_def_t x86_defs. Encoding of cpuid flags names now allows aliases for both the configuration file and the command line which reconciles some Intel/AMD/Linux/Qemu naming differences.

2009-12-12qdev: add command line option to set global defaults for properties.Gerd Hoffmann1-0/+56
This patch adds infrastructure and command line option for setting global defaults for device properties, i.e. you can for example use -global virtio-blk-pci.vectors=0 to turn off msi by default for all virtio block devices. The config file syntax is: [global] driver = "virtio-blk-pci" property = "vectors" value = "0" This can also be used to set properties for devices which are not created via -device but implicitly via machine init, i.e. -global isa-fdc,driveA=<name> This patch uses the mechanism which configures properties for the compatibility machine types (pc-0.10 & friends). The command line takes precedence over the machine type values. Signed-off-by: Gerd Hoffmann <kraxel@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>

2009-11-09Added readonly flag to -drive commandNaphtali Sprei1-0/+3
This is a slightly revised patch for adding readonly flag to the -drive command. Even though this patch is "stand-alone", it assumes a previous related patch (in Anthony staging tree), that passes the readonly attribute of the drive to the guest OS, applied first. This enables sharing same image between guests, with readonly access. Implementaion mark the drive as read_only and changes the flags when actually opening the file. The readonly attribute of a qcow also passed to it's base file. For ide that cannot pass the readonly attribute to the guest OS, disallow the readonly flag. Also, return error code from bdrv_truncate for readonly drive. Signed-off-by: Naphtali Sprei <nsprei@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>

2009-10-05Enable host-clock-based RTCJan Kiszka1-0/+3
Switch RTC emulations to the new host_clock instead of vm_clock by default. This has the advantage that the emulated RTC will follow automatically the host time while it might be tuned via NTP. vm_clock can still be selected by passing '-rtc clock=vm' on the command line. Note that some RTC emulations (at least M48T59) already use the host time unconditionally while others (namely MC146818) do not. This patch introduces the required infrastructure for selecting the base clock but only converts MC146818 for now.

2009-09-12Fix sys-queue.h conflict for goodBlue Swirl1-3/+3
Problem: Our file sys-queue.h is a copy of the BSD file, but there are some additions and it's not entirely compatible. Because of that, there have been conflicts with system headers on BSD systems. Some hacks have been introduced in the commits 15cc9235840a22c289edbe064a9b3c19c5f49896, f40d753718c72693c5f520f0d9899f6e50395e94, 96555a96d724016e13190b28cffa3bc929ac60dc and 3990d09adf4463eca200ad964cc55643c33feb50 but the fixes were fragile. Solution: Avoid the conflict entirely by renaming the functions and the file. Revert the previous hacks. Signed-off-by: Blue Swirl <blauwirbel@gmail.com>

2009-09-11switch chardev to QemuOpts: infrastructure, null deviceGerd Hoffmann1-0/+9
start switching chardevs to QemuOpts. This patch adds the infrastructure and converts the null device. The patch brings two new functions: qemu_chr_open_opts() same as qemu_chr_open(), but uses QemuOpts instead of a option char string. qemu_chr_parse_compat() accepts a traditional chardev option string, returns the corresponding QemuOpts instance, to handle backward compatibility. The patch also adds a new -chardev switch which can be used to create named+unconnected chardevs, like this: -chardev null,id=test This uses the new qemu_chr_open_opts. Thus with this patch alone only the null device works. The other devices will follow ... Signed-off-by: Gerd Hoffmann <kraxel@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>
2009-08-27raw-posix: add Linux native AIO supportChristoph Hellwig1-0/+4
Now that do have a nicer interface to work against we can add Linux native AIO support. It's an extremly thing layer just setting up an iocb for the io_submit system call in the submission path, and registering an eventfd with the qemu poll handler to do complete the iocbs directly from there. This started out based on Anthony's earlier AIO patch, but after estimated 42,000 rewrites and just as many build system changes there's not much left of it. To enable native kernel aio use the aio=native sub-command on the drive command line. I have also added an option to qemu-io to test the aio support without needing a guest.
