Does netback work *at all* for you with vp model? Looks like this patch may make it build but not actually work, which makes it seem a bit pointless.
Anyway, two possible solutions are apparent to me:1. netback gathers 'transmitted' skbuffs and then, in one batch, does a populate_physmap() call to get new pages for all of them, the kfree_skb()s each one back to system pool. 2. change semantics of grant transfers for vp guests so that the operation automatically gets you a fresh page at the same pseudo-physical address.
Option (2) is maybe the better one? Then this patch would make more sense (except that the code would be made run-time dependent on autotranslate feature flag).
