[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/2] Fix SMBios table regressions in HVM guests

The series "HVM firmware passthrough" series in Jan 2013 from Ross Philipson
cause two regressions for HVM guests which sadly found their way into the Xen
4.3 release.

The first regression causes an incorrect count of tables to be placed in the
main header, and can be seen by running dmidecode in any applicable HVM domain.

The second regression found its way into the public ABI, making it harder to
fix.  However, I believe (and have argued) that the correct fix is to change
the ABI.  I would appreciate thoughts/comments.
