Subject: [patch 14/21] Xen-paravirt: Add XEN config options and disable unsupported config options.
Date: Thu, 15 Feb 2007 18:25:03 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070216022531.570154735@goop.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070216022449.739760547@goop.org>

[-- Attachment #1: xen-config.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 3697 bytes --]

The XEN config option enables the Xen paravirt_ops interface, which is
installed when the kernel finds itself running under Xen. (By some
as-yet fully defined mechanism, implemented in a future patch.)

Xen is no longer a sub-architecture, so the X86_XEN subarch config
option has gone.

The disabled config options are:
- PREEMPT: Xen doesn't support it
- HZ: set to 100Hz for now, to cut down on VCPU context switch rate.
  This will be adapted to use tickless later.
- kexec: not yet supported
