What is the integration plan for merging this and making the associated changes to QEMU? Are you looking to merge this first?
The QEMU part will be based on this patch by Daniel; https://lore.kernel.org/qemu-devel/20200908165438.1008942-6-berrange@redhat....
I'm looking to merge this before the QEMU option, so non-working configurations (VM configured with SMBIOS 3.0 + lack of SeaBIOS support for SMBIOS 3.0) are less likely.
Thanks. We generally prefer to merge the QEMU parts first and then merge the SeaBIOS parts. Though there is some flexibility.
If desired, I can merge the first 18 parts of this series, and then merge the 19th patch after the QEMU part has passed the necessary reviews.
Gerd - do you have any thoughts on this?
Sounds good to me.
This also means we should plan a seabios release for qemu 6.0. We don't have a release schedule yet, but traditionally the first release of the year is in April with freeze in March. So a new seabios release by end of February would be good, although there is some wiggle room as I can update to a snapshot before qemu freeze, then update to the final seabios release in the qemu freeze period.
take care, Gerd
