  • Thread-topic: Glossary of Xen terms? Common recipes?

Reading the following left me longing for a glossary or Xen terms and acronyms, is their one?


> xc_map_foreign_* functions all actually take 'gmfn' -- that is the

> guest-apparent machine address. Paravirtualised guests usually see 

> machine

> addresses, so gmfn==mfn. HVM guests have the translation done for 

> them by

> the hypervisor, so they see gmfn==gpfn (guest pseudophysical frame 

> number).

> Function prototypes and comments in xenctrl.h have unfortuantely 

> not been

> updated to reflect this change.


Additionally, is there a list of “common recipes” for tasks such as sharing memory with HVM guests?  Adding devices to qemu-dm, or modifications to the rombios?
