Make hvc0 preferred console in domU none

Description Mark McLoughlin 2008-02-25 05:57:15 EST
With the F-9 pv_ops kernel-xen builds, we have to add "console=hvc" to the
kernel command line in order to get output on the Xen console.

We didn't need to do "console=xvc" before pv_ops, so we need to figure out how
to get back to that nicer situation.

Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2008-03-07 03:10:14 EST
Thanks Markus, this in rawhide kernel-xen
Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2008-04-01 09:58:57 EDT
Okay, I've dropped this patch again in kernel-xen-2.6-2.6.25-0.12.rc7.git6.fc9
at  Markus's request

See bug #437706 for more details
Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2008-04-03 09:40:28 EDT
Markus has a good summary of the issue here:

Comment 5 Mark McLoughlin 2008-04-04 13:28:05 EDT
Markus just sent this patch upstream:

  http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/4/239

Assuming it builds, it'll be in kernel-xen-2.6-2.6.25-0.16.rc8.fc9
Comment 6 Mark McLoughlin 2008-04-08 12:10:29 EDT
Okay, with pvfb configured, you don't seem to be able to force hvc to be the
preferred console using "console=hvc" 

This is with kernel-xen-2.6-2.6.25-0.19.rc8.fc9 on both i686 and x86_64
Comment 7 Markus Armbruster 2008-04-10 11:50:30 EDT

Comment 8 Mark McLoughlin 2008-04-14 14:21:08 EDT
kernel-xen-2.6.25-0.22.rc9.fc9 includes Markus's latest patch and seems to fix
the "can't override pvfb tty console with console=hvc"

This build, or a later one, should be tagged for F-9 before GA
