CONFIG_XEN_NETDEV_BACKEND: Xen backend network device

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_XEN_NETDEV_BACKEND:

Help text

This driver allows the kernel to act as a Xen network driver domain which exports paravirtual network devices to other Xen domains. These devices can be accessed by any operating system that implements a compatible front end.

The corresponding Linux frontend driver is enabled by the XEN_NETDEV_FRONTEND configuration option.

The backend driver presents a standard network device endpoint for each paravirtual network device to the driver domain network stack. These can then be bridged or routed etc in order to provide full network connectivity.

If you are compiling a kernel to run in a Xen network driver domain (often this is domain 0) you should say Y here. To compile this driver as a module, chose M here: the module will be called xen-netback.
