Re: [Xen-devel] [RFC PATCH 0/2] XEN booting on i.MX8M platform


I have CCed one person from Donerworks. IIRC they have been using the IMX8 in the past.

Yeah, most of issues are resolved now and mainline DTS is used to
bring XEN on this i.MX8 platform.

Though there is small change that comment out GPC (which is used root
interrupt parent) and instead use GIC
is done in DTS.

What are the consequences to change the interrupt parent?

The patches has been tested booting DOM0 with ramfs.

I don't think this is enough to claim support for Xen on the I.MX8M platform.
What I don't want to end up is having yet another UART driver to maintain in Xen but the platform is still unusable.

You should at least be able to boot multiple domains and use a fully fledge distro (yocto, Debian...) from a mass storage (and possibly network).
