Thank you very much!
I reviewed your test tree, and these changes are almost good.
I tested dom0/domU booting and INIT work with the test tree
and the results are good.
BTW, I appreciate your work.
I'd like to reduce your maintenance work. :-)
I learned about the following things by seeing your test tree.
We should do the below for reducing your maintenace work, shouldn't we?
1. If we port some features from linux,
we add normal file into xen/arch/ia64/linux-xen.
2. Then we modify xen/arch/ia64/linux-xen/README.orig
3. We make the above patch. This is the first patch
4. We add the changes to porting to xen.
5. We make a patch of the chages. This is second patch.
And we send the two patch to xen-ia64-devel.
We should use linux-2.6.13 for porting to xen.
The latest stable linux from www.kernel.org is better than linux-2.6.13.
Am I correct?
