Subject[PATCH 13 of 24] [PATCH] xen: Make xen-blkfront write its protocol ABI to xenstore
Date
From
From: Markus Armbruster <armbru@redhat.com>

Frontends are expected to write their protocol ABI to xenstore. Since
the protocol ABI defaults to the backend's native ABI, things work
fine without that as long as the frontend's native ABI is identical to
the backend's native ABI. This is not the case for xen-blkfront
running 32-on-64, because its ABI differs between 32 and 64 bit, and
thus needs this fix.

Based on http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-unstable.hg?rev/c545932a18f3
and http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-unstable.hg?rev/ffe52263b430 by
Gerd Hoffmann <kraxel@suse.de>
