      IB: expand ib_umem_get() prototype · cb9fbc5c
      Arthur Kepner authored
      Add a new parameter, dmasync, to the ib_umem_get() prototype.  Use dmasync = 1
      when mapping user-allocated CQs with ib_umem_get().

      IB/uverbs: Export ib_umem_get()/ib_umem_release() to modules · f7c6a7b5
      Roland Dreier authored
      Export ib_umem_get()/ib_umem_release() and put low-level drivers in
      control of when to call ib_umem_get() to pin and DMA map userspace,
      rather than always calling it in ib_uverbs_reg_mr() before calling the
      low-level driver's reg_user_mr method.
      Also move these functions to be in the ib_core module instead of
      ib_uverbs, so that driver modules using them do not depend on
      This has a number of advantages:
       - It is better design from the standpoint of making generic code a
         library that can be used or overridden by device-specific code as
         the details of specific devices dictate.
       - Drivers that do not need to pin userspace memory regions do not
         need to take the performance hit of calling ib_mem_get().  For
         example, although I have not tried to implement it in this patch,
         the ipath driver should be able to avoid pinning memory and just
         use copy_{to,from}_user() to access userspace memory regions.
       - Buffers that need special mapping treatment can be identified by
         the low-level driver.  For example, it may be possible to solve
         some Altix-specific memory ordering issues with mthca CQs in
         userspace by mapping CQ buffers with extra flags.
       - Drivers that need to pin and DMA map userspace memory for things
         other than memory regions can use ib_umem_get() directly, instead
         of hacks using extra parameters to their reg_phys_mr method.  For
         example, the mlx4 driver that is pending being merged needs to pin
         and DMA map QP and CQ buffers, but it does not need to create a
         memory key for these buffers.  So the cleanest solution is for mlx4
         to call ib_umem_get() in the create_qp and create_cq methods.

      IB: Add CQ comp_vector support · f4fd0b22
      Michael S. Tsirkin authored
      Add a num_comp_vectors member to struct ib_device and extend
      ib_create_cq() to pass in a comp_vector parameter -- this parallels
      the userspace libibverbs API.  Update all hardware drivers to set
      num_comp_vectors to 1 and have all ULPs pass 0 for the comp_vector
      value.  Pass the value of num_comp_vectors to userspace rather than
      hard-coding a value of 1.
      We want multiple CQ event vector support (via MSI-X or similar for
      adapters that can generate multiple interrupts), but it's not clear
      how many vectors we want, or how we want to deal with policy issues
      such as how to decide which vector to use or how to set up interrupt
      affinity.  This patch is useful for experimenting, since no core
      changes will be necessary when updating a driver to support multiple
      vectors, and we know that we want to make at least these changes
