Forward this to a broader mailing list.

VT-i is the virtual machine hardware feature for ia64.  With VT-i, we
can now successfully boot unmodified Linux-2.6.11 with ia64/Xen.   The
next step is to boot unmodified DomainN, and with the goal to support
both unmodified and paravirtualized Domains.



We have pushed our latest ia64/Xen code with VT support logic onto 


The tree is based on xeno-unstable-ia64.bk dated 4/24.  The current
status for ia64/Xen with VT support is we can boot unmodified
Linux2.6.11 as Domain0 to run both X and NIC.

You can do the following to build Xen with VT enabled once bk cloned

cd xen
sh arch/ia64/tools/mkbuildtree
make -j4

There is also a simple readme in README.RunVT.  

We are in process of rebase to the latest code, and will start merging
both paravirtualization and VT designs base on our previous email
