I'm trying to understand what's going on while calling 'xm save ...'.
I looked through the sources and found in xend stuff:
XendCheckpoint.py -> saveInputHandler() -> dominfo.shutdown('suspend')
This makes an entry in the xenstore:
control = ""
    shutdown = "suspend"
The function dominfo.waitForShutdown() is startet and waits for an event.
In parallel (with the forkHelper) the command
'/usr/lib/xen/bin/xc_save 21 1 0 0 0' is started and never returns.
What I miss is the connection between these both things.
Can anybody give me a hint?
(For the tests I simply added some tracer in the python scripts and startet 
the mini-os.)
Many thanks in advance!
