[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/10] xen: pv domain support.

From: Gerd Hoffmann
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/10] xen: pv domain support.
Date: Tue, 7 Apr 2009 16:44:47 +0200


Next round, addressing review comments.  Bulk of the changes are just
coding style, i.e. swap ordering of the funny "if (-1 == foo()) bar()"
compare style.  Also the FSF address is fixed everythere.  And the
qemu disk backend uses vectorized aio now.

Short overview (individual patches have longer descriptions):

  #1  - groundwork for xen support (makefiles, configure, ...).
  #2  - backend driver core (common code used by all backends).
  #3  - add console backend driver.
  #4  - add framebuffer backend driver.

With these four patches in place upstream qemu is functional aequivalent
to qemu-xen for paravirtual guests.  The patches are merged into
qemu-xen already, with the exception of a few framebuffer bits which got
hold back due to displaystate work and the most recent updates due to
review comments.

  #5  - add block device backend driver.
  #6  - add net backend driver.

These two patches add backend drivers for disk and network to qemu.

  #7  - blk & nic configuration via cmd line.
  #8  - pv domain builder.
  #9  - simplify vga selection
  #10 - add -vga xenfb option, configure xenfb

These patches add support to qemu for creating xen pv guests.  That way
one can run xen guests without xend.  Patch #8 is the domain builder
code itself.  The other patches add support for configuring devices (fb,
disk, nic) via command line.

The patches are also available via git:
 git:     git://git.et.redhat.com/qemu-kraxel.git
 gitweb:  http://git.et.redhat.com/?p=qemu-kraxel.git

 xenbits.v5  -  this patch series.
 qx.misc.v4  -  xenfb update + review changes for qemu-xen.

Ian, is just pulling from git fine with you?  Or do you want the
qemu-xen patches mailed to xen-devel?
