While I committed this as obviously correct and desirable, I wonder
what plans you have with this feature wrt
- permitting use for HVM guests
- permitting use in pv DomU
- actual use in the hypervisor itself
- use in Linux (afaict impossible at least for HLE with ticket locks, yet
  HLE is certainly the more desirable first step)

Thanks, Jan
