Re: [Xen-devel] XEN 4.5, odroid-xu, domU

Thank you Julien and Ian for your comments and suggestions!

    Thank you for your detailed comments and notes regarding
CONFIG_LL. Thank you for your suggestions on the debugging tricks. I
shall remember these for the next set of hurdles if and when I face

    Thanks for the hint on the kernel not being multiplatform. It
indeed wasn't. I do see some patches in the linux samsung next tree,
for including exynos in the multiplatform setting.
    Hence, I did a separate compile for domU, setting it to
multiplatform and CONFIG_ARCH_VIRT=y by the below:
=> System Type -> ARM system type -> Allow multiple platforms to be selected.
=> System Type -> Multiple platform selection -> ARMV v7 based
=> System Type -> Dummy Virtual machine.

With this domU boots up like a champ!

Maybe, I might try dabbling with samsung-linux next branch of the
linux kernel and see if dom0 and domU can use the same kernel.

Thank you so much again, you guys are just amazing!!

PS: It would be great if the multiplatform bit and the
CONFIG_ARCH_VIRT hint is mentioned in the wiki for the next poor soul
who hits the same issue!
