[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/2] xen: fix gnttab handling with old dom0 kernels

Trying to start a domain with a qdisk backend on an old dom0 kernel
(non-pvops xen kernel) will fail as xengnttab_set_max_grants() will
succeed only if called directly after opening the gnttab device.

These two patches address the issue by:

- moving the test for availability of xengnttab_grant_copy() from
  the qdisk backend to generic backend handling in order to not have
  to issue the grant copy ioctl with the qdisk specific file handle
- opening the gnttab device in blk_connect() only in order to
  guarantee xengnttab_set_max_grants() is called just after opening
  the gnttab device

Juergen Gross (2):
  xen: add a global indicator for grant copy being available
  xen: dont try setting max grants multiple times
