[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 00/18] introduce the Xen PV Calls backend

Hi all,

this series introduces the backend for the newly introduced PV Calls

PV Calls is a paravirtualized protocol that allows the implementation of
a set of POSIX functions in a different domain. The PV Calls frontend
sends POSIX function calls to the backend, which implements them and
returns a value to the frontend and acts on the function call.

For more information about PV Calls, please read:


I tried to split the source code into small pieces to make it easier to
read and understand. Please review!

Changes in v2:
- allocate one ioworker per socket (rather than 1 per vcpu)
- rename privs to frontends
- add newlines
- define "1" in the public header
- better error returns in pvcalls_back_probe
- do not set XenbusStateClosed twice in set_backend_state
- add more comments
- replace rw_semaphore with semaphore
- rename pvcallss to socket_lock
- move xenbus_map_ring_valloc closer to first use in backend_connect
- use more traditional return codes from pvcalls_back_handle_cmd and
- remove useless dev == NULL checks
- replace lock_sock with more appropriate and fine grained socket locks
