Re: [Xen-devel] Xen 4.7 Test Day Instructions for RC2+ : Call to action for people who added new features / functionality to Xen 4.7

Hi all,

I cleaned the test page page up as much as I could and have time for and 
incorporated your input: see 

Obviously there are still gaps, which could be filled. I did focus on top-level 
features and features which have a command-line impact. 

This means, that I didn't cover features such as VT-d posted interrupts, VMX 
TSC Scaling, huge PV-domains, ... If you do want to get them included and they 
are testable (even if as simple as "boot Xen <or whatever operation is needed> 
on HW with <xyz> feature (or even better HW of <xyz model>) in <foo-bar> 
mode"), feel free to add to the page.

Best Regards
