The code that we have upstream in xen-unstable right now will not successfully launch a domU, and because those changes will be relatively invasive (especially splitting xc_linux_build()), I will not be trying to fix that before 3.0.3 is released (which will likely be weeks at least).
I don't expect anybody here much cares, but just letting folks know what's going on. Carry on with xenppc-unstable... :) -- Hollis Blanchard IBM Linux Technology Center -------- Forwarded Message -------- From: Ian Pratt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: [Xen-devel] 3.0.3 freeze Date: Tue, 22 Aug 2006 17:03:27 +0100 Folks, I think its time to declare a 3.0.3 feature freeze. We've got all the 'must have' feature patches in -unstable and many of the 'would be nice' variety too. Just to summarize, we have: the new scheduler, blktap with file-based VM storage, upgraded device emulation, new shadow pagetable code, PV drivers for HVM guests, networking support for segmentation offload, support for the Power architecture, misc performance optimizations and bug fixes. There were a number of patches that haven't quite made the cut off due to various outstanding issues or lack of review time: The NUMA allocator patch has been observed to cause problems on at least one system. The PV framebuffer could do with a few interface tweaks and a code cleanup. The kexec/kdump patch just needs more testing [I feel bad about this one -- maybe we can retrofit it]. The xend lifecycle management patches will be held-over to the next release so it can become part of a larger set of control tool changes. Now the tree is in 'freeze' state, please can everyone get ready to do some serious testing. We're still working on a handful of known issues we can reproduce, so this message isn't quite a full call to arms for testing from the user community yet, but it would be great if developers could start giving it a workout.
