Re: [Xen-devel] [XenARM] Status of Xen ARM Project


I clarified the warning on http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_(PV) as it was a little confusing.

The original Xen ARM PV port requires a modified Linux kernel, whereas ARM support in mainline Xen does not. Many of the newer mobile platform have newer ARM CPUs and thus ARM support in mainline Xen should just work. We are also seeing pick-up in the mobile and other sectors with the new port. This is happening a lot quicker than we thought and there are activities and discussions going on to make mainline Xen more suitable for various embedded use-cases:
* http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Category:Android
* http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Category:Embedded
* http://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2013-11/msg03004.html [Xen Developer Summit BoF Notes : Seeding a Xen + Android / Embedded ecosystem BoF]
* http://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2013-11/msg02536.html [Xen for real-time/embedded/automotive]

Of course the old port is still around, but it is unlikley that much development effort will go into it.
