Abstract:

The NetBSD boot path contains conditional compiled code for XEN. In the interests of moving towards unified pvops kernels, the code can be modified to be conditionally executed at runtime.

Deliverables:

Note: Header files are exempt from #ifdef removal requirement.

Implementation:

The number of changes required are estimated as follows:

drone.sorcerer> pwd
/home/sorcerer/src/sys
drone.sorcerer> find . -type f -name '*.[cSs]' -exec grep -H "^#if.* *\\bXEN\\b" '{}' \; | wc -l
     222
drone.sorcerer>

The effort required in this task is likely to be highly variable, depending on the case. In some cases, minor API design may be required.

Most of the changes are likely to be mechanical.
