[PATCH v6 0/5] fw_cfg: add DMA operations & etc/vmcoreinfo support




Hi,

This series adds DMA operations support to the qemu fw_cfg kernel
module and populates "etc/vmcoreinfo" with vmcoreinfo location
details.

Note: the support for this entry handling has been merged for upcoming
qemu release (2.11).

v6:
- change acpi_acquire_global_lock() error to return EINVAL
  (instead of EBUSY)
- replace 0 as pointer argument for NULL
- add Gabriel r-b/a-b tags

v5:
- resent to CC kdump people on the paddr_vmcoreinfo_note() export patch

v4:
- export paddr_vmcoreinfo_note() to fix fw_cfg.ko build
- fix build with !CONFIG_CRASH_CORE
- replace the unbounded yield() loop with a usleep_range() loop and a
  200ms timeout
- do not write vmcoreinfo entry when running the kdump kernel (D. Hatayama)
- drop the experimental sysfs write support patch from this series

v3: (thanks kbuild)
- add "fw_cfg: fix the command line module name" patch
- fix build of "fw_cfg: add DMA register" with CONFIG_FW_CFG_SYSFS_CMDLINE=y
- fix 'Wshift-count-overflow'

v2:
- use platform device for dma mapping
- add etc/vmcoreinfo patch
- some code cleanups

Marc-André Lureau (5):
  fw_cfg: fix the command line module name
  fw_cfg: add DMA register
  fw_cfg: do DMA read operation
  crash: export paddr_vmcoreinfo_note()
  fw_cfg: write vmcoreinfo details
