    v14 v15  
    3030 * Xen support (Tomas Benhak)
    3131   * No public repository, but worth cherrypicking
     32   * JJ comments:
     33     * workarounds for #3 no longer needed, kernel non-identity mapping available since Dec 31, 2011
     34     * avoids use of devman which has been officially available since March 26, 2011
     35     * GPL code reuse audit desirable
    3236
    3337 * HelenOS as Xen (Jan Dolejs)
    3438   * Worth cherrypicking
     39   * JJ comments:
     40     * workarounds for #3 no longer needed, kernel non-identity mapping available since Dec 31, 2011
     41     * avoids using generic page table interfaces for PAE (most likely unnecessarily or requiring minor changes to the generic interface)
     42     * too monolithic? (doesn't seem to exploit the multiserver design for eg. the backend drivers)
     43     * xen awareness proliferation to generic code (elf_xen_parse_notes)
     44     * GPL code reuse audit desirable
    3545
    3646 * WIP: GRUB and installer ([https://code.launchpad.net/~bremby/grub4helenos/main lp:~bremby/grub4helenos/main])
