At least in
the first step I'm likely not going to honor the mainline Xen bits -
they don't really buy us much as long as they only support domUs. So after
the first merge step, I expect things to be the same as we had them before
for the -xen* flavors. We may then want/need to decide whether we want
domU support leverage the paravirt ops bits, and utilize the -xen* kernels
only for dom0 going forward.
Huh, well that's pretty useless for us. What bits actually got merged?
Only the arch support? I'm not seeing any of the Xen drivers in there
DomU (i.e. unprivileged guest) support. There are (frontend) drivers in
drivers/block/ and drivers/net/, but I'll probably rename kernel.org's
CONFIG_XEN to something different, so that the symbol will retain its
original (from our perspective) meaning, which will make these drivers
not getting picked up for the -xen* flavors (i.e. they'll continue to use
the drivers/xen/ tree).
