Re: [Xen-devel] Add XEN pvSCSI support

Sorry, please ignore.

One wrong patch slipped in, while one is missing.

Will resend with correct patches.

This series adds XEN pvSCSI support. With pvSCSI it is possible to use physical
SCSI devices from a XEN domain.

The support consists of a backend in the privileged Domain-0 doing the real
I/O and a frontend in the unprivileged domU passing I/O-requests to the backend.

The code is taken (and adapted) from the original pvSCSI implementation done
for Linux 2.6 in 2008 by Fujitsu.

[PATCH V2 1/4] Add XEN pvSCSI protocol description
[PATCH V2 2/4] Introduce xen-scsifront module
[PATCH V2 3/4] Introduce XEN scsiback module
[PATCH V2 4/4] add xen pvscsi maintainer

Changes in V4:
- Re-add define for VSCSIIF_ACT_SCSI_SG_PRESET to vscsiif.h to indicate this
   action value should not be used in future enhancements

Changes in V3:
- added some comments to the protocol header file
- removed the CDB emulation from xen-scsiback, handled by core target
- several changes in xen-scsifront after comments from Christoph Hellwig

Changes in V2:
- use core target infrastructure by backend instead of pure SCSI passthrough
- add support for larger SG lists by putting them in grant page(s)
- add command abort capability
