Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 20/48] xen: let vcpu_create() select processor

Hi Juergen,

On 09/08/2019 15:58, Juergen Gross wrote:
Today there are two distinct scenarios for vcpu_create(): either for
creation of idle-domain vcpus (vcpuid == processor) or for creation of
"normal" domain vcpus (including dom0), where the caller selects the
initial processor on a round-robin scheme of the allowed processors
(allowed being based on cpupool and affinities).

Instead of passing the initial processor to vcpu_create() and passing
on to sched_init_vcpu() let sched_init_vcpu() do the processor
selection. For supporting dom0 vcpu creation use the node_affinity of
the domain as a base for selecting the processors. User domains will
have initially all nodes set, so this is no different behavior compared
to today. In theory this is not guaranteed as vcpus are created only
with XEN_DOMCTL_max_vcpus being called, but this call is going to be
removed in future and the toolstack doesn't call
XEN_DOMCTL_setnodeaffinity before calling XEN_DOMCTL_max_vcpus.

To be able to use const struct domain * make cpupool_domain_cpumask()
take a const domain pointer, too.
