> 
> This series enables Linux guests running on Hyper-V on ARM64
> hardware. New ARM64-specific code in arch/arm64/hyperv initializes
> Hyper-V, including its synthetic clocks and hypercall mechanism.
> Existing architecture independent drivers for Hyper-V's VMbus and
> synthetic devices just work when built for ARM64. Hyper-V code is
> built and included in the image and modules only if CONFIG_HYPERV
> is enabled.
> 
> The four patches are organized as follows:
> 1) Add include files that define the Hyper-V interface as
>    described in the Hyper-V Top Level Functional Spec (TLFS), plus
>    additional definitions specific to Linux running on Hyper-V.
> 
> 2) Add core Hyper-V support on ARM64, including hypercalls,
>    synthetic clock initialization, and interrupt handlers.
> 
> 3) Update the existing VMbus driver to generalize interrupt
>    management across x86/x64 and ARM64.
> 
> 4) Make CONFIG_HYPERV selectable on ARM64 in addition to x86/x64.
> 
> Some areas of Linux guests on Hyper-V on ARM64 are a work-
> in-progress, primarily due to work still being done in Hyper-V:
> 
> * Hyper-V on ARM64 currently runs with a 4 Kbyte page size, and only
>   supports guests with a 4 Kbyte page size. Because Hyper-V uses
>   shared pages to communicate between the guest and the hypervisor,
>   there are open design decisions on the page size to use when
>   the guest is using 16K/64K pages.  Once those issues are
>   resolved and Hyper-V fully supports 16K/64K guest pages, changes
>   may be needed in the Linux drivers for Hyper-V synthetic devices.
> 
> * Hyper-V on ARM64 does not currently support mapping PCI devices
>   into the guest address space. The Hyper-V PCI driver at
>   drivers/pci/host/pci-hyperv.c has x86/x64-specific code and is
>   not being built for ARM64.
> 
> In a few cases, terminology from the x86/x64 world has been carried
> over into the ARM64 code ("MSR", "TSC").  Hyper-V still uses the
> x86/x64 terminology and has not replaced it with something more
> generic, so the code uses the Hyper-V terminology.  This will be
> fixed when Hyper-V updates the usage in the TLFS.

Greg,

Please drop this. I will be resending shortly.
