Re: [Xen-devel] [RFC PATCH 08/49] ARM: VGIC: move max_vcpus VGIC limit to struct arch_domain

The VGIC model used for a domain (GICv2 or GICv3) determines the maximum
number of VCPUs for that guest, as GICv2 can only handle 8 processors.
In the moment we carry this per-VGIC-model limit in the vgic_ops,
alongside the model specific functions. That makes some sense, but
exposes some current VGIC implementation details to generic Xen code.
Add a new arch specific field in our domain structure to hold this vcpu limit,
and initialize it when we set the ops. This allows us to plug in the new
VGIC later without also needing to carry some ops structure.

Now, you have max_vcpus defined in both arch_domain and domain. Which makes the code very confusing to read. This is becoming apparent in the check if (d->arch.max_vcpus > d->max_vcpus).

If you plan to ditch the ops, then I would prefer a check on the vGIC version. Even if it means carrying vGIC specific implementation in generic Xen code.

This would also avoid to grow the struct domain just for a "constant field" used mostly at guest creation.
