This mode allows to assign EUs to pools which can process work collectively.
The command to enable this mode should be issued as part of context initialization.

The pooled mode is global, once enabled it has to stay the same across all
contexts until HW reset hence this is sent in auxiliary golden context batch.
Thanks to Mika for the preliminary review and comments.

v2: explain why this is enabled in golden context, use feature flag while
enabling the support (Chris)

v3: Pooled EU support announced in userspace before enabling in kernel,
to simplify include all changes in the same patch.

User space clients need to know when the pooled EU feature is present
and enabled on the hardware so that they can adapt work submissions.
Create a new device info flag for this purpose, and create a new GETPARAM
entry to allow user space to query its setting.

Set has_pooled_eu to true in the Broxton static device info - Broxton
supports the feature in hardware and the driver will enable it by
default.

Opensource users for this feature are mesa, libva and beignet.

Link to those patches would be great. At least I haven't seen anything fly
by for mesa or libva, might have missed it though. Note that the patches
must be fully reviewed an ready for merging by respective userspace
upstream, before we can land the kernel side.

Initially beignet is trying to use it and they are adding support to it. 
I will share links once they send them to the list, reviewed and ready 
to be merged.

Then please don't say you have the userspace when it doesn't exist yet.

The other question: Will existing userspace fall over if we enable this in
the kernel, or is it purely opt-in? Would be good to clarify in the commit
message.

Hi Daniel,

I never claimed userspace exists for this feature, only mentioned who 
are the users and clearly stated in cover letter that Beignet team is 
currently adding userspace and libdrm support, sorry if I gave that 
impression.

Yes it is an opt-in, userspace queries its availability and configures 
itself. We do have one WA affecting few revisions where it needs to be 
enabled (explained in cover letter). I will add a note to the commit msg 
as well.

Sorry for missing that, I just spotted the one line in the patch here and
assumed it's all there already.

For the places where we must enable it, might be good to just merge that

userspace/ABI question. Then just add the patch with the getparam later on
when we have the userspace reviewed.
