Re: [Xen-devel] HVM firmware passthrough - helper library


Finally got back to this project to test out the helper lib using the v3
hvm-firmware passthrough patches with Xen 4.2.1. When building from
tools/firmware the build failed with the following output:

gcc -Wl,-soname -Wl,libxenhvm.so.1.0 -shared -o libxenhvm.so.1.0.0
xenhvm.opic smbios_module.opic acpi_module.opic xh_internal.opic

xenhvm.opic: could not read symbols: File in wrong format
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [libxenhvm.so.1.0.0] Error 1

I was hoping to integrate the build into the RPM. Any thoughts? Should I
try it with the latest 4.3?

Thanks Again,



Can you try the attached tarball. A colleague found and fixed a couple
of issues in my sample including the face that it was including in the
wrong Rules.mk.

Attached is a tarball with a helper library for reading host ACPI and
SMBIOS firmware and creating firmware files that can be used with the
HVM firmware passthrough patches I submitted. I used it in my testing of
the patches and planned to use it later when we moved to a new Xen
version. This library was requested by a few people - I hope you find it
