> Subject: [RFC v2 0/6] IRQ bypass manager and irqfd consumer
> This series introduces and extends the IRQ bypass manager written
> by Alex and transforms irqfd into an IRQ bypass manager consumer.
> The producer part, in my case the VFIO platform driver will be introduced
> separately. That code should be usable by both ARM IRQ forwarding
> and Intel Posted Interrupts.
> The IRQ bypass manager enables to setup a negotiated link between an
> IRQ producer and an IRQ consumer (typically the VFIO driver and KVM irqfd).
> The series currently includes Alex's code which was sent my email.
> Its structure obvioulsy will adapt to Alex's will.
> Also the irq bypass manager gets compiled/linked on arm/arm64 along
> with KVM and VFIO platform driver.

> v1 -> v2:
> - isolate the bypass manager and irqfd consumer in this series
> - take into account Paolo's comments and use container_of strategy and
> remove additional fields introduced in v1.
> - create kvm_irqfd.h
> - add unregistration in irqfd_shutdown
[4/6], [5/6], and [6/6] of this series are common to forwarded irq and posted
interrupts, did you have a chance to get a new version of them based on
Alex's latest irqbypass manager patch:
Thanks a lot!
> v1: originally part of [RFC 00/17] ARM IRQ forward control based on IRQ
