[Xen-devel] [RFC] Xend configuration option for console memory limit

Bug #296 describes the possible Out-Of-Memory outcome of a console
flood.  Currently, xenconsoled has the ability to obey a limit, but
Xend does not set it, to prevent console message loss.

I propose that a configuration option be added to xend-config.sxp that
sets the limit.  That way, a user with a large console buffer
requirement can easily set it, and OOM situations can be avoided.

I'll be happy to knock up a patch if this sounds reasonable.
