 Discussion topics

  • AJB: wondered if anyone had run stuff on the xen-hv

    • MP: has run a bunch on x86 but not VirGL

  • AJB: Discussing the DMAops (https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1650646263-22047-1-git-send-email-olekstysh@gmail.com/ )

    • AB: gave an overview of the the various DMA mapping stuff

    • CC: should look at Jurgen Xen Summit presentation

    • AJB: do DMA ops affect memory allocation?

      • AB: two APIs, one where you ask for a buffer (coherent ops interface)

      • AJB: does this cross sect with pKVM zero-copy?

      • AB: not really as dmaalloc deals with kernel memory and traditional zero-copy involves sharing user space address

  • AJB: pointed CC at the FEAT_LPA patches
