I've been trying to get systemsim-gpul working with the
The last changeset that worked was 7ad4645e7a54 (11/22/06).
Changeset ce8c1e26b2ae (Early boot memory avoidance improvemnts)
broke the simulator with the 'Could not allocate RTAS tree' / HANG
With changeset 878ce1f78ad3 (Fix systemsim-gpul failure to boot)
and later changesets the RTAS allocation / HANG problem is fixed
but the simulator still won't boot into Linux.
If I compare logs of the working and non-working Xen/Linux runs
in the simulator, with the current Xen Linux hangs near the end
of its boot. Last messages from Linux are:
i2c /dev entries driver IPv4 over IPv4 tunneling driver
TCP bic registered
NET: Registered protocol family 1
NET: Registered protocol family 17
Shortly after this point in the boot is where the RAMDISK is
decompressed and accessed. I'm wondering if the boot related memory
improvements have affected a RAMDISK built into Linux and Xen.
Has anyone else had recent changesets working on the simulator?
