Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v9 11/28] ARM: VGIC: add vcpu_id to struct pending_irq

Hi Andre,

On 11/05/17 18:53, Andre Przywara wrote:
The target CPU for an LPI is encoded in the interrupt translation table
entry, so can't be easily derived from just an LPI number (short of
walking *all* tables and find the matching LPI).
To avoid this in case we need to know the VCPU (for the INVALL command,
for instance), put the VCPU ID in the struct pending_irq, so that it is
easily accessible.
We use the remaining 8 bits of padding space for that to avoid enlarging
the size of struct pending_irq. The number of VCPUs is limited to 127
at the moment anyway, which we also confirm with a BUILD_BUG_ON.

Based on the previous patch (#10), I was expecting to see this new field initialized in vgic_init_pending_irq.

     /* inflight is used to append instances of pending_irq to
      * vgic.inflight_irqs */
     struct list_head inflight;
