[Xen-devel] [PATCH v6 00/24] Xenstore stub domain

Changes from v5:
 - Use BSD queue.h instead of GPL list.h in mini-os
 - Add CONFIG_LWIP to allow simpler disabling of LWIP
 - Typedef fixups
 - Create a xenstored_minios.c for minios-specific functions
 - Formatting cleanup
 - Using --internal-db is now required for a working stubdom

Changes from v4:
 - Add --internal-db flag to use TDB_INTERNAL on non-stubdom
 - Fewer #ifdefs

Changes from v3:
 - mini-os configuration files moved into stubdom/
 - mini-os extra console support now a config option
 - Fewer #ifdefs
 - grant table setup uses hypercall bounce
 - Xenstore stub domain syslog support re-enabled

Changes from v2:
 - configuration support added to mini-os build system
 - add mini-os support for conditionally compiling frontends, xenbus
 - XENMEM_remove_from_physmap moved out of arch-specific code
 - use uint32_t for virqs
 - warn when dropping grant v2-only flags when switching versions
 - IOCTL_XENBUS_BACKEND_SETUP name changed so userspace can implement compat
 - ioctl now returns -EEXIST if xenstored has already been connected
 - various cosmetic cleanups, shuffling

Changes from v1:
 - set_virq_handler implemented in libxc
 - added custom domain builder for xenstored
 - xenstore/console domain IDs now pulled from xenstore
 - migration support when using split xenstored (untested, should work)
 - slightly less intrusive NO_SOCKETS xenstored patch
   (still has many ifdefs to avoid pulling in socket headers or symbols)
 - virq handlers removed from dying domain when clearing event channels
 - dummy XSM module restricts getdomaininfo similar to no-XSM case
 - formatting/type fixups
 - partial ioctl compatibility with legacy IOCTL_XENBUS_ALLOC

To start xenstored, run:

tools/xenstore/init-xenstore-domain stubdom/mini-os-x86_64-xenstore/mini-os 20 

This will populate the xenstore domid key /tool/xenstore/domid

Other notes:

The console for xenstored is not currently set up by
init-xenstore-domain. If the hypervisor is compiled with VERBOSE or
debug=y, output from xenstored will be visible on the hypervisor serial
console (or ring buffer if enabled with console_to_ring). The xenstore
stub domain itself supports console output, and init-xenstore-domain
could be extended to daemonize and spool this output to a log file. The
normal xenconsole daemon cannot be used here due to the possibility of a
