Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH V3 2/3] xen/vm_event: Support for guest-requested events

On Mon, Jul 6, 2015 at 11:51 AM, Razvan Cojocaru <rcojocaru@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
Added support for a new class of vm_events: VM_EVENT_REASON_REQUEST,
sent via HVMOP_request_vm_event. The guest can request that a
generic vm_event (containing only the vm_event-filled guest registers
as information) be sent to userspace by setting up the correct
registers and doing a VMCALL. For example, for a 32-bit guest, this
means: EAX = 34 (hvmop), EBX = 24 (HVMOP_guest_request_vm_event),
ECX = 0 (NULL required for the hypercall parameter, reserved).

The vm_event components LGTM.
