GPLPV gathers fragments together if there are too many. Mostly this is just the 
header but there could be a whole lot of copying going on in a worst-case 

It would be nice if a max-frags value was written to xenstore... do different 
backends (solaris? Bsd?) have different requirements? Or maybe that's already 
been discussed - I haven't followed this thread closely.
