Ok, so all the nested pointers will be in the machine address space. I thinkthat will require some rework of the layering in xc_private.c, sincefunctions like xc_add_mmu_update() dereference the pointers they're passed.
Yes, that's true. Hopefully we can remove that, or worst case will need a xencomm->virtual reverse translation function....
Perfectly reasonable. If it didn't require so much out-of-tree libxc hacking,I would volunteer to implement this design right now.
Yeah, it's going to cause some short-term pain.
So I think I should leave the PPC implementation as-is for now, but I will belooking forward to post-3.0 (as I suppose we all will, for various reasons ;) .
