HEADS UP: jym-xensuspend branch merged in -current
Following Manuel Bouyer's approval, I can now announce the merge of my
jym-xensuspend branch inside -current.
The goal of this branch was to bring Xen suspend/resume functionality
inside NetBSD domU. With this work (which will be stabilized for the
upcoming NetBSD-6), NetBSD domUs will be able to save, restore, and
migrate between different hosts, for all architecture (i386, i386 PAE
Please note that this different from the dom0-side save/restore support,
which is already available in NetBSD-5.
Although the code is merged, please still consider it as an EXPERIMENTAL
target: you are advised _not_ to try it under a NetBSD-5 host, two bug
fixes must be pulled-up to -5 before you could try this feature with a
good chance of success. Anyone interested in more in depth technical
details can contact Manuel or me privately.
Hopefully these things will be settled in the upcoming days.
Thanks all for your support and patience, and please accept my apologies
in advance for any build breakage that might ensue.
