It's been a while, but after a looooooooooooong time we've (hopefully)
finally sorted the merging issues with qemu-xen.  So here is a fresh
version of the xen support for qemu patch series.  Short overview
(individual patches have longer descriptions):

Have these made their way into qemu-xen-unstable? If not, has Ian at least Acked them?


Anthony Liguori

  #1  - groundwork for xen support (makefiles, configure, ...).
  #2  - backend driver core (common code used by all backends).
  #3  - add console backend driver.
  #4  - add framebuffer backend driver.

With these four patches in place upstream qemu is functional aequivalent
to qemu-xen for paravirtual guests.  The patches are merged into
qemu-xen already, with the exception of a few framebuffer bits which got
hold back due to displaystate work.

  #5  - add block device backend driver.
  #6  - add net backend driver.

These two patches add backend drivers for disk and network to qemu.

  #7  - blk & nic configuration via cmd line.
  #8  - pv domain builder.
  #9  - simplify vga selection
  #10 - add -vga xenfb option, configure xenfb

These patches add support to qemu for creating xen pv guests.  That way
one can run xen guests without xend.  Patch #8 is the domain builder
code itself.  The other patches add support for configuring devices (fb,
disk, nic) via command line.
