kaf24@2697 14
kaf24@2697 15 For the convenience of users and those who are porting OSes to run as
kaf24@2697 16 Xen guests, certain files in this repository are not subject to the
kaf24@2697 17 GPL when distributed separately or included in software packages
kaf24@2697 18 outside this repository. Instead we specify a much more relaxed
kaf24@2697 19 BSD-style license. Affected files include the Xen interface headers
kaf24@2789 20 (xen/include/public/COPYING), and various drivers, support functions
ian@15259 21 and header files within the Linux source trees on
ian@15259 22 http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.X-xen.hg. In all such cases,
ian@15259 23 license terms are stated at the top of the file or in a COPYING file
ian@15259 24 in the same directory. Note that _any_ file that is modified and then
ian@15259 25 distributed within a Linux kernel is still subject to the GNU GPL.

kaf24@2697 31 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
kaf24@2697 32 Version 2, June 1991
kaf24@2697 33
kaf24@2697 34 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
kaf24@2697 35 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
kaf24@2697 36 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
kaf24@2697 37 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
kaf24@2697 38
kaf24@2697 39 Preamble
kaf24@2697 40
kaf24@2697 41 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
kaf24@2697 42 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
kaf24@2697 43 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
kaf24@2697 44 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
kaf24@2697 45 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
kaf24@2697 46 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
kaf24@2697 47 using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
kaf24@2697 48 the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
kaf24@2697 49 your programs, too.
kaf24@2697 50
kaf24@2697 51 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
kaf24@2697 52 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
kaf24@2697 53 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
kaf24@2697 54 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
kaf24@2697 55 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
kaf24@2697 56 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
kaf24@2697 57
kaf24@2697 58 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
kaf24@2697 59 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
kaf24@2697 60 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
kaf24@2697 61 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
kaf24@2697 62
kaf24@2697 63 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
kaf24@2697 64 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
kaf24@2697 65 you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
kaf24@2697 66 source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
kaf24@2697 67 rights.
kaf24@2697 68
kaf24@2697 69 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
kaf24@2697 70 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
kaf24@2697 71 distribute and/or modify the software.
kaf24@2697 72
kaf24@2697 73 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
kaf24@2697 74 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
kaf24@2697 75 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
kaf24@2697 76 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
kaf24@2697 77 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
kaf24@2697 78 authors' reputations.
kaf24@2697 79
kaf24@2697 80 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
kaf24@2697 81 patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
kaf24@2697 82 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
kaf24@2697 83 program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
kaf24@2697 84 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
kaf24@2697 85
kaf24@2697 86 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
kaf24@2697 87 modification follow.
kaf24@2697 88
kaf24@2697 89 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
kaf24@2697 90 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
kaf24@2697 91
kaf24@2697 92 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
kaf24@2697 93 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
kaf24@2697 94 under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
kaf24@2697 95 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
kaf24@2697 96 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
kaf24@2697 97 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
kaf24@2697 98 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
kaf24@2697 99 language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
kaf24@2697 100 the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
kaf24@2697 101
kaf24@2697 102 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
kaf24@2697 103 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
kaf24@2697 104 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
kaf24@2697 105 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
kaf24@2697 106 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
kaf24@2697 107 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
kaf24@2697 108
kaf24@2697 109 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
kaf24@2697 110 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
kaf24@2697 111 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
kaf24@2697 112 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
kaf24@2697 113 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
kaf24@2697 114 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
kaf24@2697 115 along with the Program.
kaf24@2697 116
kaf24@2697 117 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
kaf24@2697 118 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
kaf24@2697 119
kaf24@2697 120 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
kaf24@2697 121 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
kaf24@2697 122 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
kaf24@2697 123 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
kaf24@2697 124
kaf24@2697 125 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
kaf24@2697 126 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
kaf24@2697 127
kaf24@2697 128 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
kaf24@2697 129 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
kaf24@2697 130 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
kaf24@2697 131 parties under the terms of this License.
kaf24@2697 132
kaf24@2697 133 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
kaf24@2697 134 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
kaf24@2697 135 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
kaf24@2697 136 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
kaf24@2697 137 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
kaf24@2697 138 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
kaf24@2697 139 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
kaf24@2697 140 License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
kaf24@2697 141 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
kaf24@2697 142 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
kaf24@2697 143
kaf24@2697 144 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
kaf24@2697 145 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
kaf24@2697 146 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
kaf24@2697 147 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
kaf24@2697 148 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
kaf24@2697 149 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
kaf24@2697 150 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
kaf24@2697 151 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
kaf24@2697 152 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
kaf24@2697 153
kaf24@2697 154 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
kaf24@2697 155 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
kaf24@2697 156 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
kaf24@2697 157 collective works based on the Program.
kaf24@2697 158
kaf24@2697 159 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
kaf24@2697 160 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
kaf24@2697 161 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
kaf24@2697 162 the scope of this License.
kaf24@2697 163
kaf24@2697 164 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
kaf24@2697 165 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
kaf24@2697 166 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
kaf24@2697 167
kaf24@2697 168 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
kaf24@2697 169 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
kaf24@2697 170 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
kaf24@2697 171
kaf24@2697 172 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
kaf24@2697 173 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
kaf24@2697 174 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
kaf24@2697 175 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
kaf24@2697 176 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
kaf24@2697 177 customarily used for software interchange; or,
kaf24@2697 178
kaf24@2697 179 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
kaf24@2697 180 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
kaf24@2697 181 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
kaf24@2697 182 received the program in object code or executable form with such
kaf24@2697 183 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
kaf24@2697 184
kaf24@2697 185 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
kaf24@2697 186 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
kaf24@2697 187 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
kaf24@2697 188 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
kaf24@2697 189 control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
kaf24@2697 190 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
kaf24@2697 191 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
kaf24@2697 192 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
kaf24@2697 193 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
kaf24@2697 194 itself accompanies the executable.
kaf24@2697 195
kaf24@2697 196 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
kaf24@2697 197 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
kaf24@2697 198 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
kaf24@2697 199 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
kaf24@2697 200 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
kaf24@2697 201
kaf24@2697 202 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
kaf24@2697 203 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
kaf24@2697 204 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
kaf24@2697 205 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
kaf24@2697 206 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
kaf24@2697 207 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
kaf24@2697 208 parties remain in full compliance.
kaf24@2697 209
kaf24@2697 210 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
kaf24@2697 211 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
kaf24@2697 212 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
kaf24@2697 213 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
kaf24@2697 214 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
kaf24@2697 215 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
kaf24@2697 216 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
kaf24@2697 217 the Program or works based on it.
kaf24@2697 218
kaf24@2697 219 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
kaf24@2697 220 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
kaf24@2697 221 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
kaf24@2697 222 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
kaf24@2697 223 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
kaf24@2697 224 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
kaf24@2697 225 this License.
kaf24@2697 226
kaf24@2697 227 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
kaf24@2697 228 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
kaf24@2697 229 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
kaf24@2697 230 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
kaf24@2697 231 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
kaf24@2697 232 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
kaf24@2697 233 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
kaf24@2697 234 may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
kaf24@2697 235 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
kaf24@2697 236 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
kaf24@2697 237 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
kaf24@2697 238 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
kaf24@2697 239
kaf24@2697 240 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
kaf24@2697 241 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
kaf24@2697 242 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
kaf24@2697 243 circumstances.
kaf24@2697 244
kaf24@2697 245 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
kaf24@2697 246 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
kaf24@2697 247 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
kaf24@2697 248 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
kaf24@2697 249 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
kaf24@2697 250 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
kaf24@2697 251 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
kaf24@2697 252 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
kaf24@2697 253 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
kaf24@2697 254 impose that choice.
kaf24@2697 255
kaf24@2697 256 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
kaf24@2697 257 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
kaf24@2697 258
kaf24@2697 259 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
kaf24@2697 260 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
kaf24@2697 261 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
kaf24@2697 262 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
kaf24@2697 263 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
kaf24@2697 264 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
kaf24@2697 265 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
kaf24@2697 266
kaf24@2697 267 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
kaf24@2697 268 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
kaf24@2697 269 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
kaf24@2697 270 address new problems or concerns.
kaf24@2697 271
kaf24@2697 272 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
kaf24@2697 273 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
kaf24@2697 274 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
kaf24@2697 275 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
kaf24@2697 276 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
kaf24@2697 277 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
kaf24@2697 278 Foundation.
kaf24@2697 279
kaf24@2697 280 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
kaf24@2697 281 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
kaf24@2697 282 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
kaf24@2697 283 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
kaf24@2697 284 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
kaf24@2697 285 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
kaf24@2697 286 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
kaf24@2697 287
kaf24@2697 288 NO WARRANTY
kaf24@2697 289
kaf24@2697 290 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
kaf24@2697 291 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
kaf24@2697 292 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
kaf24@2697 293 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
kaf24@2697 294 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
kaf24@2697 295 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
kaf24@2697 296 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
kaf24@2697 297 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
kaf24@2697 298 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
kaf24@2697 299
kaf24@2697 300 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
kaf24@2697 301 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
kaf24@2697 302 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
kaf24@2697 303 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
kaf24@2697 304 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
kaf24@2697 305 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
kaf24@2697 306 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
kaf24@2697 307 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
kaf24@2697 308 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
kaf24@2697 309
kaf24@2697 310 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
kaf24@2697 311
kaf24@2697 312 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
kaf24@2697 313
kaf24@2697 314 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
kaf24@2697 315 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
kaf24@2697 316 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
kaf24@2697 317
kaf24@2697 318 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
kaf24@2697 319 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
kaf24@2697 320 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
kaf24@2697 321 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
kaf24@2697 322
kaf24@2697 323 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
kaf24@2697 324 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>

kaf24@2697 327 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by

kaf24@2697 331 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
kaf24@2697 332 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
