Regarding this changeset:

Added hashtable implementation, to support the reachability check against the
store. This code is by Christopher Clark.

Signed-off-by: Ewan Mellor <ewan@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>


The license of the added code is incompatible with the GPL (according to the FSF). It contains the so-called "advertising clause". See http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#TOCOrigBSD.

The code cannot be legally distributed with Xen under the GPL. Is there more of likewise licensed code hidden in the Xen sources?

Best Regards,
Michael Paesold
