[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 0/3] arm64: Add multiboot support (via fdt) for Xen boot

From: Fu Wei <fu.wei@xxxxxxxxxx>

  - This adds support for the Xen boot on ARM specification for arm64.

  - The implementation for Xen is following  <Multiboot on ARM Specification>:
    and xen/docs/misc/arm/device-tree/booting.txt in Xen source code.

  - The multiboot/module commands have existed, so we use 
    xen_hypervisor/xen_module instead.

  - This Xen boot support is built into linux module for aarch64,
    and can not be used alone.

  - Adding this functionality to the existing "linux" module is for
    reusing the existing code of devicetree.

  - Add the support of xen_hypervisor/xen_module commands in 

  - Add the introduction of xen_hypervisor/xen_module commands in docs/grub.texi

  - The example of this support is <How to boot Xen with GRUB on AArch64 the 
Foundation FVP model>

v2: remove the patches which have been accepted.
    according to Vladimir's suggestion, change the command manes
    and relevant code:
    improve the option parsing support for xen_hypervisor/xen_module commands.
    add a patch for adding xen_hypervisor/xen_module support
    in util/grub.d/20_linux_xen.in.
    update docs/grub.texi patch for the new command names.
