[Xen-devel] [PATCH] [0/5] put xen console message into syslog

Hi Keir,

I am sorry for the delayed response.  
This is the patch reflecting yourI'd like to post the patch 
that reflects your advice in the mail below.


It becomes possible to put Xen console message into syslog 
and to know the time stamp.

You are right.  
If the index that specified by the caller program is older than 
the oldest readable character index, Xen returns the current oldest index 
in this patch.

The policy of the change is as follows. 
1. The existing library interface is not changed 
   except "xen_sysctl_readconsole" structure. 
2. A new library interface is designed to hand over the index managed by
   the program that reads console messages. 
3. "xen_sysctl_readconsole" structure is changed as follows: 
    - The type of "clear" menber is moved to int32_t.
    - "cindex" member is added.
