[PATCH]Allow different config file for xenlinux on same arch

Zhang, Xiantao
Currently there is no generic configure file to compile xenlinux on
ia64, since there're several different system types like HP-ZX, DIG,
etc. Current Makefile can't meet this need and default one
(xen0_defconfig_ia64) is only for HP-ZX type. Hence, this patch can
append an additional param to configuration file name to differentiate
system types when make.

For example, we can use "make world XEN_SYSTYPE=dig" to compile, and if
a config file named as xen0_defconfig_ia64dig exists under
arch/xen/configs, it will be copied to override xen0_defconfig_ia64
before real compilation.. If no value for this option, it use default
configure file for their archs.

Configuration file is not attached here. If this approach is an agreed
approach to solve such requirement, we will check in the config file in
another mail.

RE: [PATCH]Allow different config file for xenlinux on same arch

Tian, Kevin
Hi, Dan,
        Any comments upon this thread? We also posted the patch to xen mailing list earlier, since it changes common part. Previously the generic one was once checked in, but then reversed back to ZX specific one. However customer is waiting for specific configuration file to run on tiger box. So below is another way to achieve it. If you agree with this alternative, please help push it since it's a key step to let XEN/IA64 deployed and experienced more widely. ;-)

Thanks,
Kevin
