Re: [Fedora-xen] FYI: The plan for Xen kernels in Fedora 9



All I can say is Bravo!

Thank you and the entire Fedora Xen kernel team for undertaking this quite substantial effort.

Regards,

So the plan is to re-focus 100% of all Xen kernel efforts onto paravirt_ops.
LKML already has i386 pv_ops + Xen DomU. We intend to build on this to
add:

  - x64_64 pv_ops
  - x86_64 Xen DomU on pv_ops
  - i386 & x86_64  Xen Dom0  on pv_ops
  - memory balloon
  - paravirt framebuffer
  - save/restore

All of this based on same LKML release as Fedora bare metal. If all goes to
plan it may even be in the base kernel RPM, instead of kernel-xen, but thats
a minor concern compared to the actual coding.

Getting all this done for Fedora 9 is seriously ambitious, but it is the only
long term sustainable option, other than dropping Xen entirely.
