I would also like to see this in 4.14.

Looking at patch #4, I'm not confident that the XSM parts are complete (e.g. does xen.if need updating?). Also I'd put the new access vector in xen2, since that's where set_parameter currently is (and will be removed from in a later patch), but the xen class does appear to have space so that's really just my taste.

I agree that patch #10 really needs a tools maintainer ack but that patch #11 looks straightforward too so I'd be happy without one for that.

I don't think xen.if needs updating, as it contains only macros for
groups of operations.

As the new hypercall isn't only replacing set_parameter, but has much
wider semantics, I don't think it should go to xen2. There will be
probably more interfaces being replaced and/or added after all.

If you're happy with it then, in the absence of a response from Daniel, then I think patch #4 can go in. Patch #10 and #11 have acks now, so it looks like the series is good to go. Could you send a patch for CHANGELOG.md as I think we'd consider this a significant feature :-)

I've pinged Daniel privately, and hence would like to give him a day or
two more to respond at least there. If I don't hear back, I'll put the
