Re: [Xen-devel] Shutdown questions / correct way of sending sysrq to Linux domains?

subtypes 33-127 to mean "call the sysrq handler"? If so the only question is how to glue it into the user-space tools: "xm sysrq S" ? or the counter-intuitive "xm shutdown --sysrq S"? If the developers can state their preference I'll make a proper job of it.

Besides shutdown functions sysrq may be good for other situations: remounting ro, sync the filesystems now, dump task state to console, etc. IMHO, having the "xm sysrq X" option would be usefull! :-)
