This small series reintroduces OVMF support in Xen

You can fetch working OVMF tree on:
git://xenbits.xen.org/people/liuw/ovmf.git master

Working changeset that can be sticked in Config.mk is:

Note that VNC doesn't work properly when using OVMF, but that's not OVMF's
problem. This issue should be addressed in Xen and I'm working on that.


Thanks for work on it, when I tested it months ago there was lot of problems. I think it would be good thing to give an eye to the links below to improve the hvm part:

- Integrate legacy bios support inside ovmf (I saw a draft on link above and I not know actual progress, there was also discussion about it on seabios mailing list)

- Since this is a new/experimental section, it would be a better path to move the actual 'static' data taken from hvmloader more 'dynamics' or at least have theme generated from qemu. This would lead in turn to a better support for all the new qemu device/features and also to avoid eventual regressions with ovmf/qemu newer versions. Actually even a single modification qemu-side, requires some modifications also on xen-side, lot of these tedious and long to apply/test.

Thanks for any reply.
