Hi everybody !

I am using xen-2.0.7, and wondered where, in the source code, is located
the lines that fetch the key sequence "Ctrl ]" that escape from the connected
Xen virtual console.
Indeed I want to add another key sequence. I spent a long time to search where
it is located in the code, without success. So if someone know where it is, I
will appreciate a lot :).

I searched in most of files of Xend, because I think that keyboard interrupts
are always forwarded by xen to dom0, even if the active console is owned by a
domU. Then I think that the "real" keyboard driver forwarded the scan code or
ASCII code to Xend, which sends them to the active console. And maybe before
sending the ASCII codes it checks if the key sequence is "Ctrl ]" and switch
console. Am I right ?

So where are these lines that check the key sequence and switch console ?
