Subject:[Xen-devel] Announcing xen/master: pvops git trees rearranged
From:Jeremy Fitzhardinge (jer@goop.org)

Well, my current pvops/dom0 tree is finally (reasonably) stable. There was a fairly nasty bug which ended up corrupting dom0 memory when doing IO on behalf of domains, but that is finally fixed.

In honour of this, I've renamed the rebase/* branches to xen/* (moving the old remaining xen/* branches to xen-old/*); xen/master is now the preferred branch for fetching current dom0 work.

The kernel tree is fairly featureful:

* basic dom0 support * blkback * netback * ACPI power management * S3 suspend/resume (at least for some people) * microcode update * MSI support

In other words, it has as much as it ever has.

There are a few notable missing features:

* blktap2 * netchannel2 * pci front/back * upstream Linux support * your pet feature

Full coordinates are:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git xen/master

See http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenParavirtOps for general directions on configuration, compilation and use.

This is definitely a work-in-progress kernel. I'd appreciate all bug *and* success reports so I can get some idea of how many people are using this thing, and how often there are problems. Patches gratefully accepted.

Thanks, J
