Re: [Xen-devel] Shell test for pv vs hvm (vs dom0)

Could it be possible to define some bios magic for "hardware vendor"?
So a HVM Guest would ask "What hardware am I running on?"

Just a thought...

There's no general way to discriminate between HVM and native from a shell

/sys/hypervisor or /proc/xen.

Thanks for pointing this tool out!  Looks useful.

Unfortunately, for it to be broadly useful, it would have
to ship with all distros as compiling it "on demand" on
the guest is often not an option.
