Has anyone successfully gotten a passthrough working with the GPU portion of AMD's Fusion APUs (the E-350 is my target) on top of a Linux hypervisor? IE, I want to dedicate the GPU to one VM only, excluding all other VMs as well as the host. I know PCI passthrough can work with patches / kernel rebuilds for Xen and KVM. However, since the GPU is on the same chip, I don't know if the host OS will see it as PCI.
I know there are a number of tangential issues here, such as:
- Poor Fusion drivers in Linux at the moment
- Unsuccessful patching efforts seem common
- VT-d / IOMMU is required and (from my reading) is supported on the APU, but the motherboard may not offer it
- KVM doesn't appear to support primary graphics cards, only secondary graphics cards (described here)
However, I'd like to hear from anyone who has messed with this, even failed attempts. Fedora + KVM is my preferred virtualization platform but I'm willing to change that if it makes a difference.
EDIT: The goal is to do this for a Windows 7 guest (I know it's asking a lot). Regardless, just assume this is HVM, not PV.
