Re: [Xen-users] Compiling Xen with gcc 7

Tried with no success with patching the sources. The qemu was the most sensitive part.

Hi folks,

I replaced an ancient setup of Slackware 14.1 with Xen (4.3.1) on kernel
3.12, with glibc 2.24, with the fresh components of everything
(Slackware 14.2 current, kernel 4.9.40, glibc 2.26, gcc 7.1.0, xen
4.8.1). I had quite a bit of trouble compiling Xen with gcc 7.1.0, though.

gcc 7 issues a lot more warnings than previous versions, and in many
places the gcc flag -Werror effectively halts the make, as warnings are
treated as errors.

As I really needed to get the stuff working, I changed the the -Werror
to -Wno-error where ever possible. I know it's stupid, but I had only
hours to get it going. The server is working, there seems to be no real
problems, but I want to do it the proper way.

Is there anybody out there who's built xen 4.8.1, or 4.9.0 with gcc 7?
And if so, where should I tweak the flags, or patch the source?
