[Xen-devel] MIPS port

Hello All,

About 3 weeks back, after resolving some console related issues, SMP versions of PV dom0 and domU could be booted on our MIPS boards. Our current version of MIPS Xen is based on an old version (3.4.0) and are currently in the process of moving the changes to the unstable branch. The Linux changes are not part of pv-ops infrastructure.

Although we have our simulator, the plan is to get the above running on Qemu to enable others try out the MIPS version of Xen. Linux could be released as a tarball for the present.

The performance of applications such as hackbench is a little unsatisfactory when run on PV Linux (due to frequent traps in the syscall path). So, we are also working on performance improvements, which probably could go on in parallel with the submission to open source.

Any suggestions with regard to submitting our changes are welcome.
