Re: [Xen-devel] 9p file system for xen

Wei, based on our discussions, you will review as much as possible before leaving for vacation, and have started last Wednesday. Could you please share what you are reviewing so I (and anyone else interested)Âcan also assist in reviewing it?

virtio transport.
A clarification:Â If you mean the virtio 9pfs transport, my code is based on that, and sits on top of it.

still getting debugged/checked in, in order to build DomU support for these
devices, the expected API contracts/interfaces would need to be known.

I'm not sure I get your question. What do you mean by "build DomU
support"? What kind of DomU support needs insider knowledge of how 9pfs
is setup? Are you talking about your own management stack that starts
