After a lengthy testing phase, qemu-kvm.git has replaced
kvm-userspace.git as the source repository for kvm userspace development.

Differences from kvm-userspace.git are as follows:
- everything under qemu/ has been moved to the top-level directory
- everything not under qemu/ has been moved under a new top-level
directory, kvm/
- all qemu subversion commits have been rewritten to be compatible with
what will become the master qemu git repository
- all branches and tags have been converted
- qemu-kvm.git builds standalone (does not require kvm.git)

The repository is compatible with upstream qemu.git; merges and
cherry-picking will work fine in either direction

Still missing:
- I have not tested powerpc or ia64.  Patches welcome!
- testsuite (kvm/user/ directory) does not build

- proper guest memory setup

During merge with upstream, the call to qemu_alloc_physram dropped under
the table (due to removal of phys_ram_base from qemu). And that means we
no longer call kvm_setup_guest_memory (fork will cause troubles, deja
vu...) and -mempath is broken. Sorry, I'm not deep enough into all parts
to provide a quick-fix.

That's unrelated to the repository conversion.

I'm unhappy with both qemu.git and qemu-kvm.git memory slot management; qemu-kvm.git is clumsy, and qemu.git is too simplistic (for example, it ignores the fact that dirty logging is a global resource with multiple users).

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe kvm-ia64" in
the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
