I'm working on a console driver for the Freescale hypervisor. I notice a bunch
of hvc_* files in the drivers/char directory. I also noticed
My guess is that hvcs.txt talks about drivers/char/hvcs.c, which is a console
driver specific to some IBM hypervisor. The hvc_*.c files are based on that
code but they're more generic and allow people to write console drivers for
other hypervisors easliy. Am I right?
If so, does this mean that I can take hvc_beat.c, modify it to make Freescale
hypervisor calls instead, and presto, I'm done?
