[Xen-devel] [RFC PATCH V3 0/2] support xen HVM direct kernel boot

Updated current patch series for working with qemu-xen and default
BIOS (seabios), to make it in good shape. Stubdom support will be

xen side patch: pass kernel/initrd/append parameters to qemu-dm
qemu side patch: reuse load_linux() for xen hvm direct kernel boot.
    Different from pc_memory_init which does lots of ram alloc work
    and rom/bios loading work, for xen, we only need to init a basic
    fw_cfg device used by load_linux() to store ADDRs and
    linuxboot.bin/multiboot.bin to retrive ADDRs, then load_linux(),
    after that, do real add option rom work to add
    linuxboot.bin/multiboot.bin to system option rom. Other things
    would be done by seabios smoothly.

  xen side patch:
  - as Ian (C.) suggests, add 'cmdline' to config file,
    will replace old 'root' and 'extra' way.
  - fix other comments of Ian (C.)

v2 is here:

v1 is here:
