Thread-topic: Question: PV and HVM device list

I have two questions about xen. Hope I can find answers/hints in this mailing list.


1. how PV and HVM know about what physical devices are in the PC?

2. If a USB disk is plugged in, how does xen notify this to PV and HVM so that the guest domains can do things as there were no virtualization layer.


Best regards,

Hu Jia Yi
