[Xen-ia64-devel] Re: [PATCH][RFC][IA64] Accelerate IDE PIO on HVM/IA64

Hi, Alan

Multimedia was out of my thought since my target is IA64. 
What a gorgeous music player it is! :)

For handling inb/inw/inl, I already support inw/inl except inb.
inb is processed with the previous mechanism.
All I did is to move ide_data_(read|write)[wl] functions in Qemu 
into the hypervisor.
