[Xen-devel] Re: [patch 0/3] xen: Extend xen kexec hypercall to return additional regions

Hi Simon,

   I'm not seeing how this doesn't break the x86 COMPAT/CONFIG_COMPAT
code paths.  Where does kexec_get_range_internal() get defined for
COMPAT in [1/3], and where is machine_kexec_get_xen() defined for
CONFIG_COMPAT in [2/3]?  I'm fine with the ia64 parts if Ian/Keir want
to check them into the main tree, but there is some mixed indenting in
[3/3].  Thanks,
