Re: [Xen-devel] [RFC 06/19] xen/arm: Implement hypercall PHYSDEVOP_map_pirq

Hi All,

Could someone answer - what is the future of this patch series? Are
you going to post patches as non RFC ? Will it be merged to Xen 4.5 ?
I'm asking because it is *very useful* for development we have in
GlobalLogic. In our current state we need to route some HW irqs to
domainU (Android) and we need them 1 to 1.

For now we use similar patch series -
http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2013-07/msg01146.html but
looks like it will not be merged
