Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 250203
ia64 Xen NVRAM support (Hypervisor parts)
Last modified: 2013-07-03 09:47:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Some chages to Hypervisor are necessary to support NVRAM on ia64. Other parts
(to xen tools bz#246006) were posted to virtualist and were already pulled.
To keep consistency between kernel package and xen package (header files), it
needs to be applied to the kernel. Please see bz#246006 for more information.
A patch for this bug was posted to rh-kernel on 24 Jul and got three ACKs.
according to rhkl, this patch can be deferred to 5.2
I may have misunstood this BZ, but according BZ#246006, the patch has been
ported into RHEL5.1 ?
Please get this patch into RHEL5.1 which is a major feature for IA64/Xen!

The necessary bits have been applied to the xen tools, as stated in bug 246006.
This bug is to track getting the bits that touch hypervisor code into the
kernel-xen package, but the changes don't actually do anything to the
hypervisor, the patch is purely cosmetic to make the header files match up with
what's going to be shipped in the xen package. Thus it isn't absolutely
necessary we get it in, since it doesn't make a functional difference.
