[Xen-users] Re: [Xen-devel] Xen - Guest memory allocation


             if I use the following inside the populate_physmap() inside xen/common/memory.c,

unsigned long maddr_pci = 0xdf000000;       //since I know the machine address of the mememory behind my pci device <xm dmesg>

static void populate_physmap(struct memop_args *a)
             for(i=a->nr_done; i<a->nr_extents; i++)
                 &nb sp;    if(d->is_privilaged)                       
		page = alloc_domheap_pages(d, a->extent_order, a->memflags | MEMF_node(node));
page = maddr_to_page(maddr_pci);
maddr_pci = ((maddr + PAGE_SIZE-1) &PAGE_MASK);
`    ;                         }
        printk("a->nr_done: %lx", a->nr_done);
The printk says "a->nr_done: 2000" when 'xm dmesg' is used (which is correct since I allocated 32MB for DomU = 8192 pages = 0x2000)

but exits with the following error:

& n bsp;            'dmesg' says : Using config file "/home/guest/Guest.conf".
                       Error: (1, 'Internal error', 'xc_dom_boot_domU_map: failed to mmap domU pages 0x200+0x2e3 [xenctl, rc=-1]\n'
             'xm dmesg' says: <G><1>mm.c:671:d0 Non-privileged (1) attempt to map I/O space 000df1ff

Yeah milos,
                  But the PCI  device should be allowed access by all DomUs.
Hiding the device from Dom0 is not what I really want to achieve.
I have to stick to xen source code (and not dom0 or domU) to make this possible.

As ou said in the previous mail, Im working on the populate
_physmap() to force xen allocate memory for all domUs from the memory available
behind the PCI device.

I could not understand how hiding the PCI device from Dom0 related to my goal.

Thanks alot,
Dinesh C
