Re: [Xen-devel] Xen PV: Sample new PV driver for buffer sharing between domains


Basic state change is working now, after using above script.

As I said, I want to share buffer between two domains.
Could you please suggest outlines, how can I share buffer between 2 domains(Guest and Host)?

I looked at the script again, it is wrong. The permissions should
be set for each node under the root path of the respective domains,
the first permission should be "n$domid" ($domid is the owner who
can always read/write, the n is "no access" for all domains not
explicitly listed), the second permission should be "r$domid" as
the other side should be able to read only.

In order to do it correctly the script should be:



if [ -z "$DOMU_ID"  ]; then
  echo "Usage: $0 [domU ID]]"
  echo "Connects the new device, with dom0 as backend, domU as frontend"
  exit 1

# Pause domU as a script can't write an entry and set permission
# in a single operation.
xl pause $DOMU_ID


# Tell the domU about the new device and its backend
xenstore-write $DOMU_KEY/backend-id 0
xenstore-write $DOMU_KEY/backend

# Tell the dom0 about the new device and its frontend
xenstore-write $DOM0_KEY/frontend-id $DOMU_ID
xenstore-write $DOM0_KEY/frontend "/local/domain/$DOMU_ID/device/$DEVICE/0"

# Activate the device, dom0 needs to be activated last
xenstore-write $DOMU_KEY/state 1
xenstore-write $DOM0_KEY/state 1

# Make sure the domU can read the dom0 data
xenstore-chmod -r $DOM0_KEY n0 r$DOMU_ID
xenstore-chmod -r $DOMU_KEY n$DOMU_ID r0

xl unpause $DOMU_ID
