Hi all,

This patch series implements a new transport for 9pfs, aimed at Xen

The transport is based on a traditional Xen frontend and backend drivers
pair. This patch series implements the backend, which typically runs in
Dom0. I sent another series to implement the frontend in Linux

The backend complies to the Xen transport for 9pfs specification
version 1, available here:


Changes in v4:
- add reviewed-bys
- remove useless if(NULL) checks around g_free
- g_free g_malloc'ed sgs
- remove XEN_9PFS_RING_ORDER, make the ring order dynamic per ring,
  reading the ring_order field in xen_9pfs_data_intf
- remove patch not to build Xen backends on non-Xen capable targets
  because it is already upstream

Changes in v3:
- do not build backends for targets that do not support xen
- remove xen_9pfs.h, merge its content into xen-9p-backend.c
- remove xen_9pfs_header, introduce P9MsgHeader
- use le32_to_cpu to access P9MsgHeader fields
- many coding style fixes
- run checkpatch on all patches
- add check if num_rings < 1
- use g_strdup_printf
- free fsdev_id in xen_9pfs_free
- add comments

Changes in v2:
- fix coding style
- compile xen-9p-backend.c if CONFIG_XEN_BACKEND
- add patch to set CONFIG_XEN_BACKEND only for the right targets
- add review-bys

Stefano Stabellini (8):
      xen: import ring.h from xen
      9p: introduce a type for the 9p header
      xen/9pfs: introduce Xen 9pfs backend
      xen/9pfs: connect to the frontend
      xen/9pfs: receive requests from the frontend
      xen/9pfs: implement in/out_iov_from_pdu and vmarshal/vunmarshal
      xen/9pfs: send responses back to the frontend
      xen/9pfs: build and register Xen 9pfs backend
