Hi Jan,

Not sure what you are referring to when you generic stuff, but it's 
all VMX stuff, mainly vmx exit handler. We had discussed it during 
the hackathon and the xen summit prior, and we wanted to keep functions
and code for PVH as much separate as possible to avoid filling existing
HVM code with if PVH statements. I can look into moving some stuff to
common code if you have issues with any specific ones? Or do you not
want a separate exit handler for PVH case at all? I think keeping it
separate is much better thing to do.... 

thanks for looking at the patches.
