Re: [Xen-users] build xen from source on 4.6.1 in Stretch, qemu-xen error

The patch that introduced the xfsctl feature is from 2010

Sorry for pasting the wrong link above.

The conflict between linux/fs.h & xfs/xfs.h is unique to Debian Stretch/Sid. No other distro I know of has changed linux/fs.h by adding parts of the xfs headers. Upstream qemu still has the xfsctl feature from the 2010 patch.

Lately, when building Xen/Qemu-xen for Stretch, I copy the old linux/fs.h (8.37kB) into the qemu-xen include folder before starting `make dist`

starting with the old fs.h in the Xen root:

mkdir -p tools/qemu-xen/include/linux
cp -p fs.h tools/qemu-xen/include/linux

this way the header is used only by the qemu build and I don't foul the Debian packaging.

Thanks for the report. Do you know if this is fixed in newer versions of
QEMU? (and if there's a patch we can backport to our qemu-xen tree in order
to also fix it?)
