      Allow customisation of the disk index separator · 3536c792
      Iustin Pop authored
      
      
      As per issue 124, some Xen versions (or packaging) don't deal nicely
      with the colon being part of a disk name. Therefore we add a
      configure-time option for customising this.
      
      Note: setting the separator to interesting values like / is not
      handled by the code. This being a configure-time option (e.g. to be
      set by distribution packagers), we assume the person building the code
      knows what they are doing.

      Adding blockdev_prefix to hypervisor options · 525011bc
      Maciej Bliziński authored
      
      
      Allows to install Red Hat based systems, for example Oracle Linux.
      Tested with OEL.
      
      The hypervisor by default offers a device named 'sda'.  If the SCSI
      module is already loaded, the disk device can't be created due to naming
      conflict, and the disk is not available.  A workaround is to modify the
      initrd by removing the scsi driver from it.  This helps, but doesn't
      allow to install the OS.
      
      Red Hat's installer, anaconda, runs parted, which tries to execute a
      check against /dev/sda and fails.  This makes anaconda think that the
      disk is faulty, and not available.  The best way to work around this, is
      to declare 'xvda' as the xen disk device.  Red Hat version of parted
      package contains a patch which makes parted skip the SCSI test if device
      name starts with 'xvd'.
      
      This patch allows to pass -H xen-pvm:blockdev_prefix="xvd" and
      successfully run the Red Hat installer.

      Add support and checks for version in LUXI · e986f20c
      Michael Hanselmann authored
      
      
      A new constant, LUXI_VERSION, is used to verify the peer's version. The
      version is optional, so old(er) clients and servers talking to peers not
      supporting it won't break. Example with mismatching library:
      
      $ gnt-instance list
      Unhandled Ganeti error: LUXI version mismatch, server 2020000, request
      1010000

      Add support for vm_capable in cluster verify · 8964ee14
      Iustin Pop authored
      
      
      The method to make vm_capable integrate easily into cluster verify is as follows:
      
      - we add a new NV_VMNODES that represents *non*-vm-capable nodes
      - the LU populates this list (it's expected that non-vm_capable nodes
        are few compared to vm_capable nodes)
      - backend skips the checks that are related to VM hosting
      - in the LU, we reorder the VM-related checks so that they occur after
        the non-VM (generic) tests, and we only execute them conditionally
      
      Additionally, we add some support to the instance checks to detect
      instances living on bad nodes.

      kvm: Introduce support for -mem-path · 4f958b0b
      Miguel Di Ciurcio Filho authored
      
      
      Using hugepages, KVM instances can get a good performance boost. To
      activate that, we need to pass the -mem-path argument to KVM along with
      the mount point of the hugetlbfs file system on the node.
      
      For the sake of memory availability computation, we use the -mem-prealloc
      argument when enabling hugepages, so KVM will reserve all hugepages it
      needs when it starts. This avoids allocating an instance on a node that
      will not have enough pages in case other instance needs more than what
      is available after it boots.
