During today's meeting we agreed on creating Jira cards to track how close we are to SBSA level 3 and 4 compliance when it comes to QEMU SBSA Reference Platform.
SBSA level 3 requirements are tracked in card ASA-75. I marked several cards as blockers of it.
SBSA level 4 is tracked in ASA-76. It depends on ASA-75 and then has several newer cards added as blockers:
ASA-81 Pass "Memory Access to Un-Populated addr" test in SBSA-ACS ASA-80 Pass PCIe tests in SBSA-ACS ASA-79 Pass PCIe MSI/MSI-X test in SBSA-ACS ASA-78 Pass VMID16 test in SBSA-ACS ASA-77 Pass RAS test in SBSA-ACS ASA-74 Add support for newer cpu core than Cortex-A72 ASA-67 Add Virtual Host Extensions (VHE)
Each card got failure message from SBSA-ACS as first comment.
ASA-74 among with QEMU-414 will bring us Cortex-A76 which will be v8.2 so we should pass most of PE tests.
According to SBSA v6.1 specification we will need ARMv8.3 cpu for level 4 (level 3 is fine with v8.0 one). This will be sorted out once we get v8.2 one.
