[PATCH v6 0/6] hw/misc/pvpanic: add support for normal shutdowns
Posted by Thomas Weißschuh 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Shutdown requests are normally hardware dependent.
By extending pvpanic to also handle shutdown requests, guests can
submit such requests with an easily implementable and cross-platform
mechanism.

The background is the usage of minimal Linux kernels with different
architectures for testing purposes.
Poweroff support varies highly per architecture and requires a bunch of
code to be compiled to work.
pvpanic on the other hand is very small and uniform.

Patch 1, 2 and 3 are general cleanups, which seem useful even without this
proposal being implemented.
They should also be ready to be picked up from the series on their own.

A corresponding patch has been submitted for Linux [0].
This is also where the request was voiced to drop move away from a
pvpanic uapi header in Linux.
