Subject: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 14/16] libxl: require qemu in dom0 even if stubdomain is in use
Date: Wed, 15 Jan 2020 03:39:53 +0100
Message-ID: <6e78421d673d3efc6b0f31b333c40b308632876e.1579055705.git-series.marmarek@invisiblethingslab.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.f819645cd9f5cf7a6f692f9661cfb4e670a2cd08.1579055705.git-series.marmarek@invisiblethingslab.com>

Until xenconsoled learns how to handle multiple consoles, this is needed
for save/restore support (qemu state is transferred over secondary
consoles).
Additionally, Linux-based stubdomain waits for all the backends to
initialize during boot. Lack of some console backends results in
stubdomain startup timeout.

This is a temporary patch until xenconsoled will be improved.
