Hi everybody,

we have the first test day for Xen 4.3 today.

For more information on Test Days and how to join see

I tried to build xen-4.3.0-rc1 on openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64)
As described in the wiki http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Compiling_Xen_From_Source
I did:

# git clone -b 4.3.0-rc1 git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git
# cd xen
# ./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64
# make dist

The compiling breaks in building seabios and at the moment I have no glue
where to look.
All lists apart from xen-devel to bcc, adding release manager.

Looks like a conflict with your version of iasl, which are you using?
# iasl -v

I would wager this relates to this upstream fix:

commit 298fce95db03e41d511d1890f3e667c105ac1363
Author: Kevin O'Connor <kevin@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date:   Sun Dec 2 01:15:03 2012 -0500

     ACPI: Remove unnecessary Return(One) calls from q35 DSDT.
Recent iasl compilers warn about spurious return calls. Remove extra
     return calls from the GPE event methods.  This is the q35 dsdt
     equivalent of patch 475ce3f5f6a986877d637ac39f6ee23484ecc992.
Can you see if cherry picking that from
git://git.seabios.org/seabios.git fixes the issue for you please. I
don't think we even use the q35 DSDT so this is just a build issue.
This patch updates the file src/q35-acpi-dsdt.dsl which doesn't exist in
our version of seabios. But while looking at the commit messages I found
This updates src/acpi-dsdt.dsl and the warnings

out/acpi-dsdt.dsl.i    578:             Return(0x01)
Warning  1104 -                                  ^ Reserved method should not 
return a value (_L00)

went away. With that patch in mind I fixed src/ssdt-pcihp.dsl and the warnings

out/ssdt-pcihp.dsl.i     12:  Method (_EJ0, 1) { Return(PCEJ(0x01)) } Name 
(_SUN, 0x01) }
Warning  1104 - Reserved method should not return a value ^  (_EJ0)

went away to
Excellent, George I think we should cherry-pick
475ce3f5f6a986877d637ac39f6ee23484ecc992 from upstream seabios for 4.3.

Sounds good to me.
