RPH advocacy / recruitment intake, and the qemu s390x project

R P Herrold

The Share presenters who are actively reseraching for their
employer, Z vulnerabilities, both at the application layer,
and via portscanning with a python driven 3270 emulator
with extention dissecctors for wireshark, which have been
mainlined there into the base package:

Phil Young <mainframed767@gmail.com>
Chad Rikansrud <mainframe@bigendiansmalls.com>

It is well worth tracking down and watching the recorded

They seem to 'pack the house' on their presentations, and so
this is a aveune that OMP / TSC might approach, to move
persons interested in mainframes, into productive, rather than
adversarial initial contact

Subject: qemu-d s390x] QEMU boot menu

These patches fix the following:

- The QEMU zIPL boot menu does not allow accurate selection of
non-sequential entries.

- The QEMU zIPL boot menu does not have all the capabilities of the
real zIPL menu (such as commandline args). We should print a different
banner to reflect this.

- The loadparm array in main.c can end up being not null terminated when
converted to an integer via atoui.

- A loadparm set to an empty string does not allow a boot menu.

Collin Walling (4):
pc-bios/s390-ccw: rename MAX_TABLE_ENTRIES to MAX_BOOT_ENTRIES
pc-bios/s390-ccw: fix loadparm initialization and int conversion
pc-bios/s390-ccw: fix non-sequential boot entries (eckd)
pc-bios/s390-ccw: fix non-sequential boot entries (enum)
