Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] [1/4] put xen console message into syslog butxm dmesg is not affected

Hi keir

Thank you for advice.
I'd like to attempt to change xc_readconsolering() interface.

Please let me confirm the following for my understanding.

- Xen should return the index of the oldest character on the console
  ring when the index that the caller specified is older than
  the range of the console ring.

- I think that Xen would return index position of "last" byte
  returned, not first byte.

Best regards,
Katsuhito Minai
