It is my great honor to be selected by FreeBSD Community as a SoC student to make some contribution to FreeBSD Project this summer.
I am currently a senior student in Department of Electronic Engineering of Tsinghua University, China. And I am supposed to become a student of Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences to pursue a master degree after the summer. So whatever happens, this will be a really great summer for me and I will try my best to get the job done.
What I'm going to do as a SoC 2006 project is "Integrate Xen Support to FreeBSD". My proposal for this could be found at http://www.yuanjue.net/SoC/proposal.html .
For more information about me, please feel free to check out my homepage at http://www.yuanjue.net. And my blog is also available, just keep in mind that contents of my blog are written mostly in Chinese
- domU kernel could safely ignore the 4MB ISA hole now.
- In order to embed mfsroot in the kernel, we successfully make the kernel size larger than 4MB. Theoretically, now the only limit is how many KVA_PAGES we could get for the kernel.
A domU_INSTALL kernel has been made and delivered, with which people who want to test FreeBSD as domU now could install it rather than using an existing system.
A webpage has been created for this as a step-by-step tutorial. http://www.yuanjue.net/xen/howto.html
