Description

Hi,

I have to pass several options to Xen with RAW attribute. It would be nice to implement FEATURES like with KVM. Here is an example with Xen options we currently use. Some options are mandatory for HVM/PVHVM guests. usbdevice='tablet' is needed to keep mouse pointers aligned with vnc/novnc. Note that {1|0} logical values can be translated to {yes|no} in OpenNebula like in KVM FEATURES.

FEATURES=[
        pae={1|0},   
        acpi={1|0}
        apic={1|0}
        xen_platform_pci={1|0}
        builder='hvm'
        device_model='/usr/lib/xen/bin/qemu-dm'
        boot='d'
        usbdevice='tablet']

Regards,

Laurent
