After making a quick workaround to rcu_lock DOMAIN_XEN on arm (in the quite same manner it is done in x86) I've faced different problem. Specifically, p2m_lookup for an address in the xen restricted heap fails on the very first map call: p2m_map_first returns zero page due to both p2m->first_level and p2m_first_level_index(addr) equal to zero. As far as I understand xen simply does not know how to make p2m translation for it's own restricted heap on arm. Am I right?
