Re: [libvirt] Interface driver and ESX support



I think I understand the mechanism of the VI API
and the way esx_vi.c is using it

the surounding is a bit more complex for me
so
can you provide the framework?

I mean
can you put in the esx_interface_driver.c and h
and the registration etc...
and also putting it all into the auto make mechanism(I should learn this sometime...)

I will put in the content into the functions

for the time being I am registering the esx_driver as the interface driver
so I can get a fill of it

something like that:

The attach/detach device driver functions aren't implemented yet, but
that's on my todo list.

The VI API contains methods and types to do this. It requires a new
interface driver as Chris already said. This is not implemented yet,
but that's on my todo list.

The basic question is: How urgent is this for you? Do you need it now
or can you wait some time until I implemented it?

PS: I just finished the implementation of the driver function for
virDomainDefineXML(). I need to cleanup the patches a bit and will
post them by the end of the week, depends on how fast I can get done
some other urgent, university related work.
