[Xen-devel] [RFC 0/9] The Xen Blanket: hypervisor interface for PV drivers on nested Xen

Posted by Christopher Clark 8 weeks ago
This RFC patch series adds a new hypervisor interface to support running
a set of PV front end device drivers within dom0 of a guest Xen running
on Xen.

A practical deployment scenario is a system running PV guest VMs that use
unmodified Xen PV device drivers, on a guest Xen hypervisor with a dom0
using PV drivers itself, all within a HVM guest of a hosting Xen
hypervisor (eg. from a cloud provider). Multiple PV guest VMs can reside
within a single cloud instance; guests can be live-migrated between
cloud instances that run nested Xen, and virtual machine introspection
of guests can be performed without requiring cloud provider support.

The name "The Xen Blanket" was given by researchers from IBM and Cornell
when the original work was published at the ACM Eurosys 2012 conference.
    http://www1.unine.ch/eurosys2012/program/conference.html
    https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=2168836.2168849
This patch series is a reimplementation of this architecture on modern Xen
by Star Lab.

A patch to the Linux kernel to add device drivers using this blanket interface
is at:
    https://github.com/starlab-io/xenblanket-linux
(This is an example, enabling operation and testing of a Xen Blanket nested
system. Further work would be necessary for Linux upstreaming.)
Relevant other current Linux work is occurring here:
    https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/4/8/67

I think we should discuss that topic at the Xen developer summit in
Chicago. Suddenly there seems to be a rush in nested Xen development
and related areas, so syncing the efforts seems to be a good idea.
