> People here might be interested to know that Xen pvops dom0 core
> was merged to upstream Linux kernel during the 2.6.37 merge window!
> This has been in the works for a long time, so it's good news.
> Note that this is the core/initial merge, there's more upstreaming
> needed to get for example the Xen dom0 backend drivers merged
> to be able to run other domains using the upstream kernel.
> Xen developers are working on upstreaming more of the missing bits
> in the next Linux versions.
> Recently in addition to the Xen dom0 bits there has been other
> upstreamed features aswell:
> - Xen PV-on-HVM drivers for fully virtualized (HVM) Linux guests in 2.6.36,
> and optimizations for the drivers in 2.6.37.
> - Xen PCI front driver in Linux 2.6.37 for PCI passthru to Xen PV guests
> (works also with hardware where VT-d/IOMMU is not available).
> There will also be a git kernel tree based on 2.6.37 with the backend
> drivers and other not-yet-upstreamed patches included.
