Should the /kern/xen stuff be moved into /proc, then? (/kern/xen ain't
mentioned in mount_kernfs(8)....)
exactly how is the /kern/xen stuff related to processes?
An excellent question. I have no idea what /kern/xen does.
However, given that the recent changes to /proc turn on the linux
stuff by default (which includes things like cpuinfo, mounts, and
other non strictly-process related information), I don't think it'd
be that much of a stretch to put whatever /kern/xen does in /proc.
(I could be completely misguided as to the nature of /kern/xen,
It is used to provide kernel interfaces for dom0 to some Xen-specific
routines, like privileged commands to hypervisor (mapping domU's memory
inside dom0, altering domU's states, ...), and expose information
required by Xenstore to work properly.
