Correct. There is a KFD-KGD interface that queries the PD address from the VM. The address gets put into the MAP_PROCESS packet in the HWS runlist. After that the runlist effectively caches the same address until an eviction causes a preemption. > > If yes than that would be valid because we do exactly the same in the > job during command submission. > >>> patch #5 well mixing power management into the VM functions is a clear >>> NAK. >> This part won't be in my initial upstream push for GPUVM. >> >>> That certainly doesn't belong there, but we can have a counter how >>> many compute VMs we have in the manager. amdgpu_vm_make_compute() can >>> then return if this was the first VM to became a compute VM or not. >> We currently trigger compute power profile switching based on the >> existence of compute VMs. It was a convenient hook where amdgpu finds >> out about the existence of compute work.
