2014-01-06xen/pvh/x86: Define what an PVH guest is (v3).Mukesh Rathor1-0/+14
Which is a PV guest with auto page translation enabled and with vector callback. It is a cross between PVHVM and PV. The Xen side defines PVH as (from docs/misc/pvh-readme.txt, with modifications): "* the guest uses auto translate: - p2m is managed by Xen - pagetables are owned by the guest - mmu_update hypercall not available * it uses event callback and not vlapic emulation, * IDT is native, so set_trap_table hcall is also N/A for a PVH guest. For a full list of hcalls supported for PVH, see pvh_hypercall64_table in arch/x86/hvm/hvm.c in xen. From the ABI prespective, it's mostly a PV guest with auto translate, although it does use hvm_op for setting callback vector." Also we use the PV cpuid, albeit we can use the HVM (native) cpuid. However, we do have a fair bit of filtering in the xen_cpuid and we can piggyback on that until the hypervisor/toolstack filters the appropiate cpuids. Once that is done we can swap over to use the native one. We setup a Kconfig entry that is disabled by default and cannot be enabled. Note that on ARM the concept of PVH is non-existent. As Ian put it: "an ARM guest is neither PV nor HVM nor PVHVM. It's a bit like PVH but is different also (it's further towards the H end of the spectrum than even PVH).". As such these options (PVHVM, PVH) are never enabled nor seen on ARM compilations.

2012-10-03xen/xen_initial_domain: check that xen_start_info is initializedStefano Stabellini1-1/+1
Since commit commit 4c071ee5268f7234c3d084b6093bebccc28cdcba ("arm: initial Xen support") PV on HVM guests can be xen_initial_domain. However PV on HVM guests might have an unitialized xen_start_info, so check before accessing its fields.

2012-09-14arm: initial Xen supportStefano Stabellini1-1/+1
- Basic hypervisor.h and interface.h definitions. - Skeleton enlighten.c, set xen_start_info to an empty struct. - Make xen_initial_domain dependent on the SIF_PRIVILIGED_BIT. The new code only compiles when CONFIG_XEN is set, that is going to be added to arch/arm/Kconfig in patch #11 "xen/arm: introduce CONFIG_XEN on ARM". Changes in v3: - improve comments.

2009-11-04xen: move Xen-testing predicates to common headerJeremy Fitzhardinge1-0/+32
Move xen_domain and related tests out of asm-x86 to xen/xen.h so they can be included whenever they are necessary. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy.fitzhardinge@citrix.com> Signed-off-by: Jesse Barnes <jbarnes@virtuousgeek.org>
