Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/2] Handle xen_platform_pci=0 case

Here is a little series that attempt to fix the issue regarding
xen_platform_pci=0 not been handled.

There are two patches, the first one adds an option to specifies the QEMU
machine that a user wants and we handle the xen_platform_pci=0 case using the
new option.

The new options "qemu_machine_override" will help if one want to try a q35
based device model. Otherwise, it will be used by libxl to switch to the "pc"
machine instead of the "xenfv" one when necessary, as the only difference
between both (since QEMU 1.6) is the presence of the xen-platform pci device.


Anthony PERARD (2):
   libxl: adding support to use -machine option of QEMU.
   libxl: Handle xen_platform_pci=0 case with qemu-xen.

As I understand it, this is a fix to functionality which should be supported, so doesn't need a freeze exception at this point.
