You haven't given us very much to go on, at least the hypervisor code
doing the accesses and the userspace code which invokes it would be
needed for anyone to point out what is wrong.

One hint though: You'll notice that no other hypercall takes a raw
pointer as you have shown above, they all use the XEN_GUEST_HANDLE_PARAM
construct and the associated accessors.
