[Xen-devel] [PATCH 00 of 10 v3] Automatic NUMA placement for xl


Third version of the NUMA placement series Xen 4.2.

All the comments received during v2's review have been addressed (more details
in single changelogs).

The most notable changes are the following:
 - the libxl_cpumap --> libxl_bitmap renaming has been rebased on top of the
   recent patches that allows us to allocate bitmaps of different sizes;
 - the heuristics for deciding which NUMA placement is the best one has been
   redesigned, so that it now provides total ordering.

Here it is what this posting contains (* = acked during previous round):

 * [PATCH 01 of 10 v3] libxl: add a new Array type to the IDL
   [PATCH 02 of 10 v3] libxl,libxc: introduce libxl_get_numainfo()
 * [PATCH 03 of 10 v3] xl: add more NUMA information to `xl info -n'
   [PATCH 04 of 10 v3] libxl: rename libxl_cpumap to libxl_bitmap
   [PATCH 05 of 10 v3] libxl: expand the libxl_bitmap API a bit
 * [PATCH 06 of 10 v3] libxl: introduce some node map helpers
   [PATCH 07 of 10 v3] libxl: explicitly check for libmath in autoconf
Is where data structures, utility functions and infrastructure are introduced.

 * [PATCH 08 of 10 v3] libxl: enable automatic placement of guests on NUMA nodes
 * [PATCH 09 of 10 v3] libxl: have NUMA placement deal with cpupools

Host the core of the mechanism.

 * [PATCH 10 of 10 v3] Some automatic NUMA placement documentation

For some more documentation.

Thanks a lot and Regards,
