[Xen-devel] [PATCH] pvshim: make PV shim build selectable from configure

Posted by Roger Pau Monne 9 weeks ago
So a user can decide whether to compile a PV shim as part of the tools
build. Note that the default behavior is preserved, which is to build a
PV shim when the target architecture is x86.

But the original behavior was so only when building x86_64 - see
the three lines you remove from tools/firmware/Makefile.

As said in the earlier discussion - at least gcc-based tool chains
are unlikely to cope when on ix86. Together with the changed
default behavior I guess you're actively breaking the (32-bit
x86) build. At the very least you'd need to probe for a capable
(cross) tool chain. (Quite possibly a 32-bit build on a 64-bit
host would still work fine, but that's not enough imo.)
