[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen/public: arch-arm: Restrict the visibility of struct vcpu_guest_core_regs

Posted by Julien Grall 14 weeks ago
Currently, the structure vcpu_guest_core_regs is part of the public API.
This implies that any change in the structure should be backward
compatible.

However, the structure is only needed by the tools and Xen. It is also
not expected to be ever used outside of that context. So we could save us
some headache by only declaring the structure for Xen and tools.

Suggested-by: Andrew Cooper <andrew.cooper3@citrix.com>
Signed-off-by: Julien Grall <julien.grall@arm.com>

---
    This is a follow-up of the discussion [1].

    As this is now Xen and tools only, I am wondering whether the check on
    GNU_C is still necessary. I am happy to send a follow-up patch (or fold
    in this one) if it can be removed.

I'm puzzled by you still adding another #if, rather than moving the
block down into the existing one. You said you'd wait for Stefano's
opinion, and he asked that you follow my suggestion. Did I miss
some further part of the discussion?

No I have sent the wrong version. Not sure how because the changes are 
correct in the branch I am using.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I will resend the patch.

Cheers,
