Re: [Xen-devel] How does hypervisor handle the hypercalls fromguest OSes?

Connect something (e.g. another computer) to the serial console,
and boot Xen with serial console enabled.

As well as printk, Xen has a GDB stub. This is quite powerful,
and can be used for debugging domains and processes too.

"xen_dmesg.py" in dom0 will show you the console output from
*Xen*. (//var/log/messages and xen_read_console are domain
console tools).

For any serious debugging, get yourself a serial line. xen_dmesg
isn't much use if either Xen or domain 0 are already blown to bits.

BTW: What does your new hypercall do?
