Re: [Xen-devel] PV DRM doesn't work without auto_translated_physmap feature in Dom0

Hello again,
I have not yet made to work my drm client, so I have tried to run linux like a domU (to see how it should work), it doesn’t work too — displ_be catches SIGSEGV:

#0  0x00007f4afed1c161 in ?? () from /lib64/libc.so.6
#1  0x000055723b9c5bec in Drm::DumbDrm::copy (this=0x7f4adc000e00) at /home/santucco/tmp/xen-troops/displ_be/src/displayBackend/drm/Dumb.cpp:149
#2  0x000055723b9a8f51 in BuffersStorage::getFrameBufferAndCopy (this=0x7f4ae00010e0, fbCookie=18446612682295083264) at /home/santucco/tmp/xen-troops/displ_be/src/displayBackend/BuffersStorage.cpp:165
It tries to copy to mBuffer with non-accessible address.
For the moment I see a strange offset for mmap call of /dev/drm/card0 in the strace log — 0x100000000. Is that normal?
Any direction of which to dig will be very helpful.
Configuration details:
Xen 4.12.1 Dom0: Linux 4.20.17-gentoo #13 SMP Sat Dec 28 11:12:24 MSK 2019 x86_64 Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU N3050 @ 1.60GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
DomU: Linux 4.20.17-gentoo
last xen-troops/libxenbe and xen-troops/displ_be
Logs (dmesg, xl dmesg, displ_be, strace log of displ_be), a backtrace of gdb and kernel configs are attached.
Thanks in advance.

Well, it solely depends on your setup, so I cannot tell what
would the numbers be in your case. Comparing to what I have doesn't
make any sense to me: one should compare apples to apples

You can try if this approach fits your design and requirements
