menu "Xen driver support"
depends on XEN
config XEN_BALLOON
bool "Xen memory balloon driver"
default y
help
The balloon driver allows the Xen domain to request more memory from
the system to expand the domain's memory allocation, or alternatively
return unneeded memory to the system.
config XEN_SELFBALLOONING
bool "Dynamically self-balloon kernel memory to target"
depends on XEN && XEN_BALLOON && CLEANCACHE && SWAP && XEN_TMEM
default n
help
Self-ballooning dynamically balloons available kernel memory driven
by the current usage of anonymous memory ("committed AS") and
controlled by various sysfs-settable parameters. Configuring
FRONTSWAP is highly recommended; if it is not configured, self-
ballooning is disabled by default. If FRONTSWAP is configured,
frontswap-selfshrinking is enabled by default but can be disabled
with the 'tmem.selfshrink=0' kernel boot parameter; and self-ballooning
is enabled by default but can be disabled with the 'tmem.selfballooning=0'
kernel boot parameter. Note that systems without a sufficiently
large swap device should not enable self-ballooning.
config XEN_BALLOON_MEMORY_HOTPLUG
bool "Memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver"
default n
depends on XEN_BALLOON && MEMORY_HOTPLUG
help
Memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver allows expanding memory
available for the system above limit declared at system startup.
It is very useful on critical systems which require long
run without rebooting.
Memory could be hotplugged in following steps:
1) target domain: ensure that memory auto online policy is in
effect by checking /sys/devices/system/memory/auto_online_blocks
file (should be 'online').
2) control domain: xl mem-max <target-domain> <maxmem>
where <maxmem> is >= requested memory size,
3) control domain: xl mem-set <target-domain> <memory>
where <memory> is requested memory size; alternatively memory
could be added by writing proper value to
/sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target or
/sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target_kb on the
target domain.
Alternatively, if memory auto onlining was not requested at step 1
the newly added memory can be manually onlined in the target domain
by doing the following:
for i in /sys/devices/system/memory/memory*/state; do \
[ "`cat "$i"`" = offline ] && echo online > "$i"; done
or by adding the following line to udev rules:
SUBSYSTEM=="memory", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '[ -f /sys$devpath/state ] && echo online > /sys$devpath/state'"
config XEN_BALLOON_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_LIMIT
int "Hotplugged memory limit (in GiB) for a PV guest"
default 512 if X86_64
default 4 if X86_32
range 0 64 if X86_32
depends on XEN_HAVE_PVMMU
depends on XEN_BALLOON_MEMORY_HOTPLUG
help
Maxmium amount of memory (in GiB) that a PV guest can be
expanded to when using memory hotplug.
A PV guest can have more memory than this limit if is
started with a larger maximum.
This value is used to allocate enough space in internal
tables needed for physical memory administration.
config XEN_SCRUB_PAGES_DEFAULT
bool "Scrub pages before returning them to system by default"
depends on XEN_BALLOON
default y
help
Scrub pages before returning them to the system for reuse by
other domains. This makes sure that any confidential data
is not accidentally visible to other domains. Is it more
secure, but slightly less efficient. This can be controlled with
xen_scrub_pages=0 parameter and
/sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/scrub_pages.
This option only sets the default value.
If in doubt, say yes.
config XEN_DEV_EVTCHN
tristate "Xen /dev/xen/evtchn device"
default y
help
The evtchn driver allows a userspace process to trigger event
channels and to receive notification of an event channel
firing.
If in doubt, say yes.
config XEN_BACKEND
bool "Backend driver support"
depends on XEN_DOM0
default y
help
Support for backend device drivers that provide I/O services
to other virtual machines.
config XENFS
tristate "Xen filesystem"
select XEN_PRIVCMD
default y
help
The xen filesystem provides a way for domains to share
information with each other and with the hypervisor.
For example, by reading and writing the "xenbus" file, guests
may pass arbitrary information to the initial domain.
If in doubt, say yes.
config XEN_COMPAT_XENFS
bool "Create compatibility mount point /proc/xen"
depends on XENFS
default y
help
The old xenstore userspace tools expect to find "xenbus"
under /proc/xen, but "xenbus" is now found at the root of the
xenfs filesystem. Selecting this causes the kernel to create
the compatibility mount point /proc/xen if it is running on
a xen platform.
If in doubt, say yes.
config XEN_SYS_HYPERVISOR
bool "Create xen entries under /sys/hypervisor"
depends on SYSFS
select SYS_HYPERVISOR
default y
help
Create entries under /sys/hypervisor describing the Xen
hypervisor environment. When running native or in another
virtual environment, /sys/hypervisor will still be present,
but will have no xen contents.
config XEN_XENBUS_FRONTEND
tristate
config XEN_GNTDEV
tristate "userspace grant access device driver"
depends on XEN
default m
select MMU_NOTIFIER
help
Allows userspace processes to use grants.
config XEN_GNTDEV_DMABUF
bool "Add support for dma-buf grant access device driver extension"
depends on XEN_GNTDEV && XEN_GRANT_DMA_ALLOC && DMA_SHARED_BUFFER
help
Allows userspace processes and kernel modules to use Xen backed
dma-buf implementation. With this extension grant references to
the pages of an imported dma-buf can be exported for other domain
use and grant references coming from a foreign domain can be
converted into a local dma-buf for local export.
config XEN_GRANT_DEV_ALLOC
tristate "User-space grant reference allocator driver"
depends on XEN
default m
help
Allows userspace processes to create pages with access granted
to other domains. This can be used to implement frontend drivers
or as part of an inter-domain shared memory channel.
config XEN_GRANT_DMA_ALLOC
bool "Allow allocating DMA capable buffers with grant reference module"
depends on XEN && HAS_DMA
help
Extends grant table module API to allow allocating DMA capable
buffers and mapping foreign grant references on top of it.
The resulting buffer is similar to one allocated by the balloon
driver in that proper memory reservation is made by
({increase|decrease}_reservation and VA mappings are updated if
needed).
This is useful for sharing foreign buffers with HW drivers which
cannot work with scattered buffers provided by the balloon driver,
but require DMAable memory instead.
config SWIOTLB_XEN
def_bool y
select SWIOTLB
config XEN_TMEM
tristate
depends on !ARM && !ARM64
default m if (CLEANCACHE || FRONTSWAP)
help
Shim to interface in-kernel Transcendent Memory hooks
(e.g. cleancache and frontswap) to Xen tmem hypercalls.
config XEN_PCIDEV_BACKEND
tristate "Xen PCI-device backend driver"
depends on PCI && X86 && XEN
depends on XEN_BACKEND
default m
help
The PCI device backend driver allows the kernel to export arbitrary
PCI devices to other guests. If you select this to be a module, you
will need to make sure no other driver has bound to the device(s)
you want to make visible to other guests.
The parameter "passthrough" allows you specify how you want the PCI
devices to appear in the guest. You can choose the default (0) where
PCI topology starts at 00.00.0, or (1) for passthrough if you want
the PCI devices topology appear the same as in the host.
The "hide" parameter (only applicable if backend driver is compiled
into the kernel) allows you to bind the PCI devices to this module
from the default device drivers. The argument is the list of PCI BDFs:
xen-pciback.hide=(03:00.0)(04:00.0)
If in doubt, say m.
config XEN_PVCALLS_FRONTEND

depends on INET && XEN
default n
select XEN_XENBUS_FRONTEND
help
Experimental frontend for the Xen PV Calls protocol
(https://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/misc/pvcalls.html). It
sends a small set of POSIX calls to the backend, which
implements them.
config XEN_PVCALLS_BACKEND
bool "XEN PV Calls backend driver"
depends on INET && XEN && XEN_BACKEND
default n
help
Experimental backend for the Xen PV Calls protocol
(https://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/misc/pvcalls.html). It
allows PV Calls frontends to send POSIX calls to the backend,
which implements them.
If in doubt, say n.
config XEN_SCSI_BACKEND
tristate "XEN SCSI backend driver"
depends on XEN && XEN_BACKEND && TARGET_CORE
help
The SCSI backend driver allows the kernel to export its SCSI Devices
to other guests via a high-performance shared-memory interface.
Only needed for systems running as XEN driver domains (e.g. Dom0) and
if guests need generic access to SCSI devices.
config XEN_PRIVCMD
tristate
depends on XEN
default m
config XEN_STUB
bool "Xen stub drivers"
depends on XEN && X86_64 && BROKEN
default n
help
Allow kernel to install stub drivers, to reserve space for Xen drivers,
i.e. memory hotplug and cpu hotplug, and to block native drivers loaded,
so that real Xen drivers can be modular.
To enable Xen features like cpu and memory hotplug, select Y here.
config XEN_ACPI_HOTPLUG_MEMORY
tristate "Xen ACPI memory hotplug"
depends on XEN_DOM0 && XEN_STUB && ACPI
default n
help
This is Xen ACPI memory hotplug.
Currently Xen only support ACPI memory hot-add. If you want
to hot-add memory at runtime (the hot-added memory cannot be
removed until machine stop), select Y/M here, otherwise select N.
config XEN_ACPI_HOTPLUG_CPU
tristate "Xen ACPI cpu hotplug"
depends on XEN_DOM0 && XEN_STUB && ACPI
select ACPI_CONTAINER
default n
help
Xen ACPI cpu enumerating and hotplugging
For hotplugging, currently Xen only support ACPI cpu hotadd.
If you want to hotadd cpu at runtime (the hotadded cpu cannot
be removed until machine stop), select Y/M here.
config XEN_ACPI_PROCESSOR
tristate "Xen ACPI processor"
depends on XEN && XEN_DOM0 && X86 && ACPI_PROCESSOR && CPU_FREQ
default m
help
This ACPI processor uploads Power Management information to the Xen
hypervisor.
To do that the driver parses the Power Management data and uploads
said information to the Xen hypervisor. Then the Xen hypervisor can
select the proper Cx and Pxx states. It also registers itself as the
SMM so that other drivers (such as ACPI cpufreq scaling driver) will
not load.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called xen_acpi_processor If you do not know what to choose, select
M here. If the CPUFREQ drivers are built in, select Y here.
