This patch update only the ovmf changeset but not the repository,
now git://xenbits.xen.org/ovmf.git is not updated, so you have to
update it or change also repository to
All other things look good to me, now I test this series of patches.
I don't have the permission to push to that repository so I need to
defer this to maintainers.

Again, you can probably wait until this series go through push gate
before conducting any test.


For this patches serie:
Tested-by: Fabio Fantoni <fabio.fantoni@xxxxxxx>

About ovmf:
I don't have uefi domUs ready, so I did a fast test with windows 7
pro 64 bit dvd and starts, spice it works.
The problem found for now is very bad general performance and at the
end of windows installer loading the domU reboots.
Oh Windows... :-P

I know that quality, efficiency, stability and security do not exist in the Microsoft vocabulary... Unfortunately almost all users for desktop/workstation use windows (for now) and even at the time I still use it for work due to some programs that only run on windows (and often are made very badly) :(

It would be useful to have at least some hypervisor / QEMU logs.

I found this error on xl dmesg:
(XEN) mm.c:620:d0 Could not get page ref for pfn ffffffffffffffff
I see a recently posted patch about pfn:
Can this serie solve the problem and I have to try it or has nothing to do with this?

And this is the error that cause reboot of domU:
(XEN) hvm.c:1274:d4 Triple fault on VCPU0 - invoking HVM shutdown action 1.

I not found any other error or relevant information on logs but I attach them if you want see.

I also tried with Ubuntu 12.04.3, same pfn error on xl dmesg, same performance problem (some minutes only for arrive to grub-efi of dvd) and after other 10-15 minutes without complete the boot I did a destroy.
Also for that logs on attachments.

Despite windows is bad, it seems that problems persist even in the test linux except the shutdown with vcpu issue.

The dom0 used have the installation of this:
Except the git branch used (here the hvm-improve.t6) and the qemu:
QEMU_UPSTREAM_URL ?= git://xenbits.xen.org/staging/qemu-upstream-unstable.git

If you need more informations and/or tests tell me and I'll do/post them.

About legacy bios support that I mentioned days ago I found this document about:
Seem that need ovmf change (and probably also on hvmloader) that are not able to do.

Thank for any reply and sorry for my bad english.
