	  Self-ballooning dynamically balloons available kernel memory driven
	  by the current usage of anonymous memory ("committed AS") and
	  controlled by various sysfs-settable parameters.  Configuring
	  FRONTSWAP is highly recommended; if it is not configured, self-
22
	  ballooning is disabled by default. If FRONTSWAP is configured,
23
	  frontswap-selfshrinking is enabled by default but can be disabled
24
	  with the 'tmem.selfshrink=0' kernel boot parameter; and self-ballooning
25
	  is enabled by default but can be disabled with the 'tmem.selfballooning=0'
26 27
	  kernel boot parameter.  Note that systems without a sufficiently
	  large swap device should not enable self-ballooning.

	bool "Memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver"
	default n
	depends on XEN_BALLOON && MEMORY_HOTPLUG
	help
	  Memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver allows expanding memory
	  available for the system above limit declared at system startup.
	  It is very useful on critical systems which require long
	  run without rebooting.

	  Memory could be hotplugged in following steps:

	    1) dom0: xl mem-max <domU> <maxmem>
	       where <maxmem> is >= requested memory size,

	    2) dom0: xl mem-set <domU> <memory>
	       where <memory> is requested memory size; alternatively memory
	       could be added by writing proper value to
	       /sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target or
	       /sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target_kb on dumU,

	    3) domU: for i in /sys/devices/system/memory/memory*/state; do \
	               [ "`cat "$i"`" = offline ] && echo online > "$i"; done

	  Memory could be onlined automatically on domU by adding following line to udev rules:

	  SUBSYSTEM=="memory", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '[ -f /sys$devpath/state ] && echo online > /sys$devpath/state'"

	  In that case step 3 should be omitted.

	  The PCI device backend driver allows the kernel to export arbitrary

	  The parameter "passthrough" allows you specify how you want the PCI
	  devices to appear in the guest. You can choose the default (0) where

          This ACPI processor uploads Power Management information to the Xen
	  hypervisor.

	  To do that the driver parses the Power Management data and uploads
	  said information to the Xen hypervisor. Then the Xen hypervisor can
	  select the proper Cx and Pxx states. It also registers itslef as the
	  SMM so that other drivers (such as ACPI cpufreq scaling driver) will
	  not load.

          To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
	  called xen_acpi_processor  If you do not know what to choose, select
	  M here. If the CPUFREQ drivers are built in, select Y here.
