Subject[PATCH 1/6] xenbus: prepare data structures and parameter for xenwatch multithreading
Date
This is the 1st patch of a (6-patch) patch set.

This patch set of six patches introduces xenwatch multithreading (or
multithreaded xenwatch, abbreviated as 'mtwatch') to dom0 kernel. In
addition to the existing single xenwatch thread, each domU has its own
kernel thread ([xen-mtwatch-<domid>]) to process its xenwatch event.

A kernel parameter 'xen_mtwatch' is introduced to control whether the
feature is enabled or not during dom0 kernel boot. The feature is disabled
by default if 'xen_mtwatch' is not set in grub. In addition, this patch
also introduces the data structures to maintain the status of each per-domU
xenwatch thread. The status of each xenwatch thread (except the default
one) is maintained by a mtwatch domain.

The feature is available only on dom0.
