I am working on Cavium Thunder (ARM64) on this feature.
[Xen SMMU driver changes + PCI passthrough changes in Xen and Linux]

FYI, I'm currently reworking the SMMU drivers to resync with Linux. With
thoses changes, you should not need to modify the SMMU code.

Thank you for the update. Put your name behind that for 4.6.

Ok, replaced Julien's name with yours. Please make sure
that for the Linux patches you CC xen-devel and the
maintainers (David, Stefano, Boris and me).

There is 2 distinct passthrough: platform (i.e non-PCI) and PCI one.

While Manish is working on PCI passthrough, I'm still working the
non-PCI one. Please don't drop my name.

I thought that Arianna's patches had taken care of that (the MMIO
part?). Or does each platform need a different implementation of

To passthrough a platform device you need to be able to assign the device to
the guest via the IOMMU and map MMIOs (done by Arianna's series) and

For a PCI passthrough SMMU ops are to be added. The way the smmu for a
pci device is found needs to be updated in the smmu.c, so there are
some substantial changes to smmu.c for pci passthrough.

The SMMU drivers in Linux already supports PCI. As I'm currently resync our driver with this version PCI assignment in the SMMU should come freely.

I expect the only plumbing for the Xen callback and few bugs fixes will be necessary.

Also MMIO mapping code the same pci device to be added.

Hmmm? What do you mean? MMIO mapping code is definitely not part of the SMMU drivers.

IIRC, this should be done by either the toolstack or PCI back in Linux.

So in short there changes, and as they are in the same files and
features are also similar,  is it possible that we work together may
be julien can provide a design document (simple txt file would do).

There is no need of design document for the SMMU drivers. Everything for DT passthrough is already there.

Could you send a link to this mail?
