Why the module is a bad idea on HEAD/10.x ? To explain further, I do not object against Xen code included into GENERIC. I am interested in the possibility of the stripped down kernel (without XEN options) which can be made operable on HVM with the module preloaded. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-xen To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-xen-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
