Michael,

I think I have the kernel patch for kvm_irqfd and kvm_ioeventfd, but missed the qemu side patch for irqfd and ioeventfd.

I met the compile error when I compiled virtio-pci.c file in qemu-kvm like this:

/root/work/vmdq/vhost/qemu-kvm/hw/virtio-pci.c:384: error: `KVM_IRQFD` undeclared (first use in this function)
/root/work/vmdq/vhost/qemu-kvm/hw/virtio-pci.c:400: error: `KVM_IOEVENTFD` undeclared (first use in this function)

Which qemu tree or patch do you use for kvm_irqfd and kvm_ioeventfd?

Thanks
Xiaohui

The irqfd/ioeventfd patches are part of Avi's kvm.git tree:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/avi/kvm.git

I expect them to be merged by 2.6.32-rc1 - right, Avi?
