      Changes to support XEN shared nodes and guest snapshots. · 2489c09b
      Leigh B Stoller authored
      Snapshots are done a little differently then openvz of course, since
      there are potentially multiple disk partitions and a kernel. The basic
      operation is:
      
      1. Fire off reboot_prepare from boss. Changes to reboot_prepare result
         in the guest "halting" insted of rebooting.
      
      2. Fire off the create-image client script, which will take imagezips
         of all of the disks (except the swap partition), and grab a copy of
         the kernel. A new xm.conf file is written, and then the directory
         is first tar'ed and then we imagezip that bundle for upload.
      
      3. When booting a guest, we now look for guest images that are
         packaged in this way, although we still support the older method
         for backwards compatability. All of the disks are restored, and a
         new xm.conf created that points to the new kernel.

      Replace license symbols with {{{ }}}-enclosed license blocks. · 6df609a9
      Eric Eide authored
      This commit is intended to makes the license status of Emulab and
      ProtoGENI source files more clear.  It replaces license symbols like
      "EMULAB-COPYRIGHT" and "GENIPUBLIC-COPYRIGHT" with {{{ }}}-delimited
      blocks that contain actual license statements.
      
      This change was driven by the fact that today, most people acquire and
      track Emulab and ProtoGENI sources via git.
      
      Before the Emulab source code was kept in git, the Flux Research Group
      at the University of Utah would roll distributions by making tar
      files.  As part of that process, the Flux Group would replace the
      license symbols in the source files with actual license statements.
      
      When the Flux Group moved to git, people outside of the group started
      to see the source files with the "unexpanded" symbols.  This meant
      that people acquired source files without actual license statements in
      them.  All the relevant files had Utah *copyright* statements in them,
      but without the expanded *license* state...

      Clientside changes to handle creating a snapshot of the an OpenVZ · 713e0919

      container.
      
      * Change reboot_prepare to take a -noreboot argument since in general
        we want to control the reboot externally. Just want to run prepare. 
      
      * New openvz variant of create-image that installed on openvz hosts,
        which is called from the server side to reboot/prepare the contaner,
        take the snapshot using tar/imagezip/frisupload, and then restart
        the container.
