[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 0/5] xen: Add EFI support


This patch series adds EFI support for Xen dom0 guests.
It is based on Jan Beulich and Tang Liang work. I was
trying to take into account all previous comments,
however, if I missed something sorry for that.

I am still not sure what to do with /sys/firmware/efi/config_table,
/sys/firmware/efi/{fw_vendor,runtime,systab} files. On bare metal
they contain physical addresses of relevant structures. However,
in Xen case they does not make sens. So maybe they should contain
invalid values (e.g. 0) or should not appear at all on Xen (I prefer
last one). What do you think about that?
