Xen Developer Email Discussion

As part of the new emphasis on exposing developer activities to the broader community, I plan to highlight a few xen-devel discussions every week on this blog to allow the community a better view of developer interaction. If you have any thoughts on this new activity please let me know.

  • Race condition in /etc/xen/scripts/block -
    Bastian de Groot reports a problem when starting a VM from a dm-device which is setup by a script executed in the script /etc/xen/scripts/block. He is getting
    different results depending on where he places the setup script. James Harper responded that he has seen a similar problem based on the device being placed as primary or secondary. He then supplies a patch which solves this issue.
  • kernel BUG at drivers/xen/balloon.c:528 -
    Łukasz Oleś reports a problem when running the latest xen/next and includes the memory and register information. Jeremy Fitzhardinge asks if this is for a PV or HVM guest and Stefano Stabellini added that the bug is from a backend driver and he has already posted the fix. Łukasz Oleś responded with another problem he found but there is no response as of yet.
