Subject: [PATCH v2 0/4] Remove 32-bit Xen PV guest support
Date: Wed,  1 Jul 2020 13:06:46 +0200
Message-ID: <20200701110650.16172-1-jgross@suse.com> (raw)

The long term plan has been to replace Xen PV guests by PVH. The first
victim of that plan are now 32-bit PV guests, as those are used only
rather seldom these days. Xen on x86 requires 64-bit support and with
Grub2 now supporting PVH officially since version 2.04 there is no
need to keep 32-bit PV guest support alive in the Linux kernel.
Additionally Meltdown mitigation is not available in the kernel running
as 32-bit PV guest, so dropping this mode makes sense from security
point of view, too.

Changes in V2:
- rebase to 5.8 kernel
- addressed comments to V1
- new patches 3 and 4

Juergen Gross (4):
  x86/xen: remove 32-bit Xen PV guest support
  x86/paravirt: remove 32-bit support from PARAVIRT_XXL
  x86/paravirt: cleanup paravirt macros
  x86/paravirt: use CONFIG_PARAVIRT_XXL instead of CONFIG_PARAVIRT
