Wouldn't boot_cpus_count then also need to be updated in smp_resume()? If the user hotplugs a new cpu between system start and prior to an s3 resume event, then the new could should be handled during that resume.
when I try to put romfile_loadint() into smp_scan(), it breaks compilation with:
ERROR: .data.varinit../src/romfile.c.13 is VARVERIFY32INIT but used from ['.text.runtime../src/resume.c.142', '.text.smp_scan', '.text.romfile_loadint', '.text.romfile_find']
I'm not sure how to fix it
Right - one can't use the romfile code on resume. I forgot about that.
I don't have a good solution. One option is to record the fw_cfg 'select' and then call qemu_cfg_read_entry() directly on the resume path. Another option would be to pass the number of active CPUs using some mechanism other than fw_cfg. Neither seems like a great option.
QEMU has cpu hotplug MMIO registers, what we can do is to replace fwcfg(etc/boot_cpus) with registers address fwcfg(etc/cphp_addr) and add a command to return number of cpus in QEMU: https://github.com/qemu/qemu/blob/master/docs/specs/acpi_cpu_hotplug.txt Then Seabios would be able to query it at resume time. But that's even more complicated than "record the fw_cfg 'select' and then call qemu_cfg_read_entry()"
