Added blktap support. Includes kernel driver (enabled as CONFIG_XEN_BLKDEV_TAP=y) and userspace tools. The userspace deamon (blktapctrl) is enabled by default when xend is activated. For further information on using and configuring blktap see tools/blktap/README.

1 To install the library, execute the command:
3 make prefix=`pwd`/usr install
5 which will install the binaries and header files into the directory
6 usr. Set prefix=/usr to get them installed into the main system.
8 Please note: Do not attempt to install on the system the
9 "libredhat-kernel.so" file. It is a dummy shared library
10 provided only for the purpose of being able to bootstrap
11 this facility while running on systems without the correct
12 libredhat-kernel.so built. The contents of the included
13 libredhat-kernel.so are only stubs; this library is NOT
14 functional for anything except the internal purpose of
15 linking libaio.so against the provided stubs. At runtime,
16 libaio.so requires a real libredhat-kernel.so library; this
17 is provided by the Red Hat kernel RPM packages with async
18 I/O functionality.
