Hello list,

I'm about to put a 4-core Linux system together, and I would like to
be able to use Xen to run a very limited dom0 and a few
general-purpose domU's. It would be great if I could run the graphics
driver directly in one of the domU's rather than using the slower
emulated driver. I understand it would require modification of the
driver source, and fortunately Intel has seen fit to provide it.

Has anyone considered doing this yet? Does anyone have any advice on
what mechanisms to use? Is there any general framework being created
for this sort of thing or would it be quicker to make a specific hack?
What would be the best way to solve the domU to physical lookup
problem? I imagine it may be possible to put a special mark in the
memory manager of dom0 that could guarantee physical regions are where
domU expects.

Also, has anyone managed to run Wine successfully in a domU?
