Generic "hypervisor virtual console" infrastructure for various
hypervisors (pSeries, iSeries, Xen, lguest).
It will automatically be selected if one of the back-end console drivers
bool "pSeries Hypervisor Virtual Console support"
depends on PPC_PSERIES
pSeries machines when partitioned support a hypervisor virtual
console. This driver allows each pSeries partition to have a console
which is accessed via the HMC.
bool "Old driver for pSeries serial port (/dev/hvsi*)"
depends on HVC_CONSOLE
bool "OPAL Console support"
depends on PPC_POWERNV
PowerNV machines running under OPAL need that driver to get a console
bool "IBM RTAS Console support"
depends on PPC_RTAS
IBM Console device driver which makes use of RTAS
bool "z/VM IUCV Hypervisor console support (VM only)"
depends on S390
This driver provides a Hypervisor console (HVC) back-end to access
a Linux (console) terminal via a z/VM IUCV communication path.
bool "Xen Hypervisor Console support"
depends on XEN
Xen virtual console device driver
bool "Xen Hypervisor Multiple Consoles support"
depends on HVC_XEN
Xen driver for secondary virtual consoles
bool "udbg based fake hypervisor console"
depends on PPC
This is meant to be used during HW bring up or debugging when
no other console mechanism exist but udbg, to get you a quick
console for userspace. Do NOT enable in production kernels.
bool "ARM JTAG DCC console"
depends on ARM || ARM64
This console uses the JTAG DCC on ARM to create a console under the HVC
driver. This console is used through a JTAG only on ARM. If you don't have
a JTAG then you probably don't want this option.
bool "Blackfin JTAG console"
depends on BLACKFIN
This console uses the Blackfin JTAG to create a console under the
the HVC driver. If you don't have JTAG, then you probably don't
want this option.
tristate "IBM Hypervisor Virtual Console Server support"
depends on PPC_PSERIES && HVC_CONSOLE
Partitionable IBM Power5 ppc64 machines allow hosting of
firmware virtual consoles from one Linux partition by
another Linux partition. This driver allows console data
from Linux partitions to be accessed through TTY device
interfaces in the device tree of a Linux partition running
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called hvcs. Additionally, this module
will depend on arch specific APIs exported from hvcserver.ko
which will also be compiled when this driver is built as a
