[Xen-devel] Test report for xen-unstable and qemu-xen

Wheezy 64 bit with kernel from package linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 version 3.2.46-1 and all dependency packages for xen, spice and usb redirection. Seabios 1.7.3-1, qemu 1.5.0+dfsg-5 (1.5.1), spice 0.12.4-0nocelt1 and usbredir 0.6-2 compiled from debian unstable sources.
git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git (in this build commit is 30e9a840b822ea57319abc0d136945a150fb915b)
Added some patches:
- tools-configure-qemu-for-spice-and-usbredir
- libxl-Add-spice-vdagent-support-for-upstream-qemu v3
- libxl: Spice disable-copy-paste support for upstream qemu
- libxl: usb2 and usb3 controller support for upstream qemu v4
- tools-firmware-seabios-packaged
- tools: Improve make deb v3
- pc:Fix initialization of the ram_memory variable (to fix qemu 1.6 critical regression)
vi Config.mk # Change upstream qemu to 1.6
QEMU_UPSTREAM_URL ?= git://git.qemu.org/qemu.git
QEMU_UPSTREAM_REVISION ?= 1ee2daeb6448312d6d0e22175f5c1b9b01f8974c
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-xend --enable-qemu-traditional=no
make debball

Note: mainly tested with qemu 1.6

Issues solved from my previous test build report:
- domU not start with qemu 1.5.1 and more that 2 gb of ram:
tested on w7 64 bit domU with 4 gb of ram, with built-in qemu 1.3 it works, while with qemu 1.5.1 doesn't (stops at the beginning, spice client show only the lines of seabios version and machine UUID; qemu log show nothing more that 2 gb test), while with 2 gb of ram works also with qemu 1.5.1
- Starting xendomain with "xl create" show some debug options:

- nested hvm was bugged: started test it on windows 7 pro 64 domU on qemu-xen, on xpmode now works also integration features (disks,printers,clipboard sharing) and usb passthrough

Old issue:
- Network is not working after restore on Windows domU with qemu-xen and gplpv
  Workaround: fixed mac address
- on W7 pro 64 bit domU error in the begin of qemu log, while domU seem to work: xc: error: linux_gnttab_set_max_grants: ioctl SET_MAX_GRANTS failed (22 = Invalid argument): Internal error
  xen be: qdisk-832: xc_gnttab_set_max_grants failed: Invalid argument
