This is the only patch which changed meaningfully in v9, so I'm just
posting it that one below FTR, intra-log is:

v9: Refactor over "xenstore: move init-xenstore-domain to

    need for LDLIBS_xenevtchn and never did, so that hunk is simply
    dropped.

Only other interesting thing in v9 would have been #05 "tools: Refactor
/dev/xen/gnt{dev,shr} wrappers into libxengnttab." which needed some
conflict resolution due to "xenstore: move init-xenstore-domain to
tools/helpers" but that was all.

Subject: [PATCH] tools: Refactor /dev/xen/evtchn wrappers into libxenevtchn.
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

libxenevtchn will provide a stable API and ABI for accessing the
evtchn device.

The functions are moved into the xenevtchn namespace to make a clean
break from libxc and avoid ambiguity regarding which interfaces are
stable.

All in-tree users are updated to use the new names.

Upon request (via #define XC_WANT_COMPAT_EVTCHN_API) libxenctrl will
provide a compat API for the old names. This is used by qemu-xen for
the time being. qemu-xen-traditional is updated in lockstep.

This leaves a few event channel related functions which go via privcmd
(EVTCHNOP) rather than ioctls on the /dev/xen/evtchn device in
libxenctrl. Specifically:

 - xc_evtchn_alloc_unbound
 - xc_evtchn_reset
 - xc_evtchn_status

Note that xc_evtchn_alloc_unbound's functionality is also provided by
xenevtchn_bind_unbound_port() (née xc_evtchn_bind_unbound_port) and is
probably redundant.

These functions do not appear to be needed by qemu-dm, qemu-pv
(provision of device model to HVM guests and PV backends respectively)
or by libvchan suggesting they are not needed by non-toolstack uses of
event channels. QEMU does use these in hw/xenpv/xen_domainbuild.c but
that is a "toolstack use".

The new library uses a version script to ensure that only expected
symbols are exported and to version them such that ABI guarantees can
be kept in the future.

Must be applied with:

 - "qemu-xen-traditional: Use libxenevtchn" and a corresponding
   QEMU_TAG update folded here.
 - "mini-os: Include libxenevtchn with libxc"" and a corresponding
   bump to MINIOS_UPSTREAM_REVISION folded in here.

v2: Update doc at same time
    Removed some stray compat thing
v3: Moved to tools/libs/evtchn
v4: typedef the xenevtchn_handle in xenguest.h instead of #include, to
    avoid leaking the libxenevtchn namespace into callers who may not
    want it. (And also to avoid adding lots of -I to places like
    stubdom builds)
v5: Handle NULL passed to _close()
v6: Properly port xen-access to new API (instead of a single function call)
v7: Added mk-headers-$(XEN_TARGET_ARCH) build dependency instead of
    open coding the recursion.
v8: Remove *.so on clean, add distclean target.
v9: Refactor over "xenstore: move init-xenstore-domain to
    tools/helpers" this highlighted that init-xenstore-domain has no
    need for LDLIBS_xenevtchn and never did, so that hunk is simply
    dropped.
