Hi all,

I've just submitted a patch to upstream Xen which will be of interest to
rumprun users who want to run "rumprun -i" non-interactively, ie. without
stdin and piping stdout to eg. logger. This also allows you to trivially
run a rumprun unokernel as a systemd service.

Cool, that is definitely a useful improvement for folks who want to (semi-)automatically provision a large number of rumprun unikernels and still keep track of what they are doing.

I assume your motivation for the integration with systemd is to start services as a set of unikernels when a host boots up.

That said, I wonder if -i should not be called -i. Enabling the use of interactive mode non-interactively is, um, weird ;)
