KVM: PPC: Implement level interrupts for BookE

BookE also wants to support level based interrupts, so let's implement
all the necessary logic there. We need to trick a bit here because the
irqprios are 1:1 assigned to architecture defined values. But since there
is some space left there, we can just pick a random one and move it later
on - it's internal anyways.

Alexander Graf [Mon, 30 Aug 2010 08:44:15 +0000]
KVM: PPC: Implement Level interrupts on Book3S

The current interrupt logic is just completely broken. We get a notification
from user space, telling us that an interrupt is there. But then user space
expects us that we just acknowledge an interrupt once we deliver it to the
guest.

This is not how real hardware works though. On real hardware, the interrupt
controller pulls the external interrupt line until it gets notified that the
interrupt was received.

So in reality we have two events: pulling and letting go of the interrupt line.

To maintain backwards compatibility, I added a new request for the pulling
part. The letting go part was implemented earlier already.

With this in place, we can now finally start guests that do not randomly stall
and stop to work at random times.

This patch implements above logic for Book3S.

KVM: PPC: Enable napping only for Book3s_64

Before I incorrectly enabled napping also for BookE, which would result in
needless dcache flushes. Since we only need to force enable napping on
Book3s_64 because it doesn't go into MSR_POW otherwise, we can just #ifdef
that code to this particular platform.

Alexander Graf [Sun, 15 Aug 2010 06:39:19 +0000]
KVM: PPC: Don't put MSR_POW in MSR

On Book3S a mtmsr with the MSR_POW bit set indicates that the OS is in
idle and only needs to be waked up on the next interrupt.

Now, unfortunately we let that bit slip into the stored MSR value which
is not what the real CPU does, so that we ended up executing code like
this:

r = mfmsr();
/* r containts MSR_POW */
mtmsr(r | MSR_EE);

This obviously breaks, as we're going into idle mode in code sections that
don't expect to be idling.

This patch masks MSR_POW out of the stored MSR value on wakeup, making
guests happy again.

Alexander Graf [Sun, 15 Aug 2010 06:04:24 +0000]
KVM: PPC: Implement correct SID mapping on Book3s_32

Up until now we were doing segment mappings wrong on Book3s_32. For Book3s_64
we were using a trick where we know that a single mmu_context gives us 16 bits
of context ids.

The mm system on Book3s_32 instead uses a clever algorithm to distribute VSIDs
across the available range, so a context id really only gives us 16 available
VSIDs.

To keep at least a few guest processes in the SID shadow, let's map a number of
contexts that we can use as VSID pool. This makes the code be actually correct
and shouldn't hurt performance too much.

KVM: PPC: Update int_pending also on dequeue

When having a decrementor interrupt pending, the dequeuing happens manually
through an mtdec instruction. This instruction simply calls dequeue on that
interrupt, so the int_pending hint doesn't get updated.

This patch enables updating the int_pending hint also on dequeue, thus
correctly enabling guests to stay in guest contexts more often.

KVM: PPC: Interpret SR registers on demand

Right now we're examining the contents of Book3s_32's segment registers when
the register is written and put the interpreted contents into a struct.

There are two reasons this is bad. For starters, the struct has worse real-time
performance, as it occupies more ram. But the more important part is that with
segment registers being interpreted from their raw values, we can put them in
the shared page, allowing guests to mess with them directly.

This patch makes the internal representation of SRs be u32s.
