[Xen-devel] Re: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/7] merge some xen bits into qemu

  Hi folks,

xen support is implemented using another machine type.  xen's qemu-dm
already uses the machine type to switch between paravirtualized and
fully virtualized machines, so this was the natural choice.  qemu has
gets a new "xenpv" machine type additionally to the "pc" and "isapc"


Modulo some of the stylistic feedback that needs to be addressed, I think these series looks pretty good. It fits pretty well into QEMU. Unless there are major objections, I'll apply an updated series once people have had some time to look through it.

However, I'd like to see agreement within the Xen community that this is the right approach first. In particular, I would like to see these patches either merged with upstream Xen or for upstream Xen to plan to rebase against QEMU to pick them up and use them for PV support. This doesn't mean they have to use the block and net backends of course. I really don't want to support two implementations of Xen support in QEMU.
