With this patch: "  xen/enlighten: Expose MWAIT and MWAIT_LEAF if
hypervisor OKs it." which is now in 3.4-rc0:
it means that now that the drivers/acpi/acpi_pad.c can run
as is under Xen (as the MWAIT_LEAF is exposed) What is the impact
of that? Is the monitor call causing a trap to the hypervisor which will
ignore the call? Or will it have some more worrysome consequences?
