PCI Passthrough Support in Xen Hypervisor for ARMv8 - Cavium ThunderX Soc - Manish Jaggi, Cavium Networks & Vijaya Kilari, Cavium Networks

ARMv8 architecture provide the support for running server class applications. One of the requirement is assigning devices directly to a domain with minimum interrupt injection latency.
With ARM IPs like GICv3 / ITS / SMMUv2 (IOMMU), assigning a PCI device (MMIO + MSIX) directly to a domU is possible.
This talk will focus on the architecture of these IPs on the 48core ARMv8 Cavium ThunderX SoC and the support added in Xen hypervisor to provide PCI passthrough and SRIOV functionality. Also discussed is the GICV3 and ITS emulation support added for running ARMv8 guest domain in Xen.
