Additionally, I want to know if patch v6 is fine to be acked.

My position hasn't changed: I view this as correct but incomplete,
and hence not ready for inclusion. With - iirc - Tim being of a
different opinion, if you want to push for a decision without
supplying the missing pieces, see the section "Conflict Resolution"
on http://www.xenproject.org/governance.html. But of course
I'd much prefer to avoid having to fall back to this, and instead
have a complete patch set to commit within reasonable time.

Looks I can't make my RFC patches to implement a complete RMRR
supporting better as you pointed while reviewing, so I have to go back
looking at this.

Please just give me a little time to hand you a replacement patch on
which you could then base the rest of your series. But please also
realize that this isn't my top priority.


So how can I issue such a private vote on these two patches? I don't see
How-to in the section "Conflict Resolution" on


I have to admit its really hard to push this RMRR RFC with my
experiences and skills. Currently every new revision doesn't minimize
all previous comments. Instead, it always brings more comments or
arguments. So I don't think myself can do this very well in Xen side.

So I still hope we can issue such a vote on these two patches if possible.

Lars, how would we go about this?

Once I have enough capability to cover this I can go back or other guys
may do really better than me.

I already helped you with the first patch. Did you ask the VT-d

Yes, this already costs more our time as you said, and this is also one reason why I'm saying myself can't finish this series completely.

Recently looks we have to re-concern this to cover more scenarios, hotplug, migration and so forth. I don't think I already have a clear design to address everything.

Originally that series is just as RFC. And I believe you already don't hope I post too much more incomplete codes to you again.

maintainers for help with the rest?
