Not a new hcall, just a new subcall. Forgot to include the struct:

#define XENMEM_add_foreign_to_pmap_batch      19
struct xen_add_to_foreign_pmap_batch {
    domid_t foreign_domid;         /* IN: gmfn belongs to this domain */
    int count;                     /* IN/OUT: number of contigous
frames */ unsigned long     gpfn;        /* IN: pfn in the current
domain */ unsigned long     gmfn;        /* IN: from foreign domain */
    int fpmap_flags;               /* future use */
typedef struct xen_add_to_foreign_pmap_batch

well, set_mmio_p2m_entry() calls set_p2m_entry() with a couple checks.
I can add those to my function and just call set_p2m_entry too. It says
mmio, but doesn't seem to do anything mmio specific.
