Hypercall / VHM upcall¶
HV currently supports hypercall APIs for VM management, I/O request distribution, and guest memory mapping.
HV and Service OS (SOS) also use vector 0xF7, reserved as x86 platform IPI vector for HV notification to SOS. This upcall is necessary whenever there is device emulation requirement to SOS. The upcall vector 0xF7 is injected to SOS vCPU0
SOS will register the irq handler for 0xF7 and notify the I/O emulation module in SOS once the irq is triggered.
