[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 0/8] Add hypervisor sysfs-like support

Posted by Juergen Gross 3 weeks ago
On the 2019 Xen developer summit there was agreement that the Xen
hypervisor should gain support for a hierarchical name-value store
similar to the Linux kernel's sysfs.

This is a first implementation of that idea adding the basic
functionality to hypervisor and tools side. The interface to any
user program making use of that "xen-hypfs" is a new library
"libxenhypfs" with a stable interface.

As a followup switching libxl to use the hypervisor file system for
runtime parameter modifications is possible. This would enable
removal of the XEN_SYSCTL_set_parameter sysctl operation.

Changes in V4:
- former patch 2 removed as already committed
- addressed review comments

Changes in V3:
- major rework, especially by supporting binary contents of entries
- added several new patches (1, 2, 7)
- full support of all runtime parameters
- support of writing entries (especially runtime parameters)

Changes in V2:
- all comments to V1 addressed
- added man-page for xenhypfs tool
- added runtime parameter read access for string parameters

Changes in V1:
- renamed xenfs ->xenhypfs
- added writable entries support at the interface level and in the
  xenhypfs tool
- added runtime parameter read access (integer type only for now)
- added docs/misc/hypfs-paths.pandoc for path descriptions

Juergen Gross (8):
  xen: add a generic way to include binary files as variables
  docs: add feature document for Xen hypervisor sysfs-like support
  xen: add basic hypervisor filesystem support
  libs: add libxenhypfs
  tools: add xenfs tool
  xen: provide version information in hypfs
  xen: add /buildinfo/config entry to hypervisor filesystem
  xen: add runtime parameter access support to hypfs
