Re: [vfio-users] can't get my video card to connect to my vm



I tried 2 things to avoid: "fglrx driver claiming the interrupt"
Start vm before fglrx gets to claiming it. (bad idea!)

Edit xorg related config to see what is connecting the driver to the card. (better idea)
All i found was PCI:1:0:0 (first GPU) in the config
Also tried "# aticonfig --adapter=0 --initial" and got the same config as my system created for me.

Any ideas on how i can keep the following process from claiming it?
dmesg:

Recap:
Dear All,

I can't get the video card which is using vfio to connect to my vm:
lspci -nnk
06:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670] [1002:6758]
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:03ea]
        Kernel driver in use: vfio-pci
        Kernel modules: radeon, fglrx
06:00.1 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks/Whistler HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6000 Series] [1002:aa90]
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:aa90]
        Kernel driver in use: vfio-pci
        Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel

I start the vm from cli with qemu command with sudo
The devices 06:00.0 and 06:00.1 are together in group 22
I added /dev/vfio/22 to acl in qemu config

When using vfio_iommu_type1.allow_unsafe_interrupts=1 on start vm I get the error:
stdout:
qemu-system-x86_64: -device vfio-pci,host=06:00.0,addr=09.0,multifunction=on: vfio: Error: Failed to setup INTx fd: Device or resource busy
qemu-system-x86_64: -device vfio-pci,host=06:00.0,addr=09.0,multifunction=on: Device initialization failed
dmesg:
genirq: Flags mismatch irq 55. 00000080 (vfio-int0000:06:00.0)) vs. 00000800 (fglrx[1] PCI:6:0:0)

Without vfio_iommu_type1.allow_unsafe_interrupts=1 on start vm I get the error:
stdout:
vfio: failed to set iommu for container: Operation not permitted 
dmesg:
vfio_iommu_type1_attach_group: No interrupt remapping support.  Use the module param "allow_unsafe_interrupts" to enable VFIO IOMMU support on this platform

system:
sabertooth 990FX v1.1
AMD FX-8120
main GPU: Radeon HD 5xxx 
VM GPU: Radeon HD 6xxx
Manjaro (arch) kernel 4.1

Thanks that got me a bit further. 
dmesg | grep AMD-Vi

Any starting point where I can find info on how to get iommu remapping in my kernel? 




Firmware bug... BIOS update? This is not blocking you though, it just means you need to use the allow_unsafe_interrupts module option. You'd hit the same problem with the fglrx driver claiming the interrupt even if you had interrupt remapping working.
