Hey Yang,

This is something really useful to have on the wiki, thanks for doing

Right. With that in mind, I think this topic would be a great one for a
blog post on the Xen Project's blog! The content you have on the wiki is
mostly fine as the core content of the blog post too, we'd just need a
couple more "colloquial" glue paragraph here and there, both about
nested virt in general and about Xen supporting it, for instance...

...something like this line above... It's actually a quite good example
of what I meant above! :-)

So, how do you feel about this?

Sorry for my ignorance on the subject, what is it that is missing for
making the above (and the content of the wiki) true for 4.4?

Anyway, I don't think that, whatever the answer is, it will be less
worth to have a blog post about nested virt... At most it will affect
when we want it. If it's going to be a 4.4 feature, I think the sooner
the better. If not, we can wait a little bit.

Let me know your thoughts on the idea.
