* xen: implement save/restoreJeremy Fitzhardinge2008-05-271-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch implements Xen save/restore and migration. Saving is triggered via xenbus, which is polled in drivers/xen/manage.c. When a suspend request comes in, the kernel prepares itself for saving by: 1 - Freeze all processes. This is primarily to prevent any partially-completed pagetable updates from confusing the suspend process. If CONFIG_PREEMPT isn't defined, then this isn't necessary. 2 - Suspend xenbus and other devices 3 - Stop_machine, to make sure all the other vcpus are quiescent. The Xen tools require the domain to run its save off vcpu0. 4 - Within the stop_machine state, it pins any unpinned pgds (under construction or destruction), performs canonicalizes various other pieces of state (mostly converting mfns to pfns), and finally 5 - Suspend the domain Restore reverses the steps used to save the domain, ending when all the frozen processes are thawed.

* xen: make grant table arch portableIsaku Yamahata2008-04-241-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | split out x86 specific part from grant-table.c and allow ia64/xen specific initialization. ia64/xen grant table is based on pseudo physical address (guest physical address) unlike x86/xen. On ia64 init_mm doesn't map identity straight mapped area. ia64/xen specific grant table initialization is necessary.

* xen: replace callers of alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() with xen_ prefixed oneIsaku Yamahata2008-04-241-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Don't use alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() directly, instead define xen_alloc_vm_area()/xen_free_vm_area() and use them. alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() are used to allocate/free area which are for grant table mapping. Xen/x86 grant table is based on virtual address so that alloc_vm_area()/free_vm_area() are suitable. On the other hand Xen/ia64 (and Xen/powerpc) grant table is based on pseudo physical address (guest physical address) so that allocation should be done differently. The original version of xenified Linux/IA64 have its own allocate_vm_area()/free_vm_area() definitions which don't allocate vm area contradictory to those names. Now vanilla Linux already has its definitions so that it's impossible to have IA64 definitions of allocate_vm_area()/free_vm_area(). Instead introduce xen_allocate_vm_area()/xen_free_vm_area() and use them.

* xen: Add grant table supportJeremy Fitzhardinge2007-07-181-0/+107
Add Xen 'grant table' driver which allows granting of access to selected local memory pages by other virtual machines and, symmetrically, the mapping of remote memory pages which other virtual machines have granted access to. This driver is a prerequisite for many of the Xen virtual device drivers, which grant the 'device driver domain' restricted and temporary access to only those memory pages that are currently involved in I/O operations.
