Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 01/14] arm: start working on ARM

Hi Jae-Min,
I am glad to see the ARM PV code being submitted upstream, thanks for
you hard work!
It is not clear on what changeset the patches are based on, next time
could you please send an introductory email with an high level
description of the work, the diff stat and the changeset on which the
work is based on? Otherwise it is very hard to review.
See for example:


The other piece of information that is missing is what ARM processors
families and models are supported and how we could try out the code.

Also, as of last week the Xen port to ARMv7 with virtualization
extensions went in xen-unstable (see
http://marc.info/?l=xen-devel&m=132759546228687): I think it would be
great if you could rebase your patches on it so that we could start
collaborating together toward a single Xen ARM port.
It would certainly be a great benefit for the Xen community.

However I do understand that there are technical differences between the
two approaches and that it would be a significant amount of work for you
to rebase on top of the current xen/arch/arm, so if you want to keep
your port as it is, you could choose a different name for it, for
example armpv, and you would be able to keep it completely separate
