[Xen-devel] [HACKATHON] libxl refactoring session note

* Auto generate device handling routines

Libxl has a lot of PV drivers. And the number is  increasing at the moment.

GlobalLogic has some customised drivers. The code plumbing is painful.

Libxl already has IDL to describe the device interface and uses
scripts to generate a lot of files.

Propose to auto-generate device handling routines.

All: Good idea.

* Allow to mark some devices non-critical

You might want domain creation continues even if some devices fail to
initialise. Example: a guest can continue to function without a sound

Ian: Classify devices as critical and non-critical. Add a field in
IDL. All devices critical by default.
