    (acquiring locking twice)
  * Change for ()-loop in grant_map_exists
  * Coding style fixes
  * Coding style nits from Jan Beulich
  * Fixup read locks pointed out by Jan Beulich
  * renamed double_gt_(un)lock to double_maptrack_(un)lock
    per request from Jan Beulich
  * Addressed ASSERT()'s from Jan Beulich

  * Addressed gnttab_swap_grant_ref() comment from Andrew Cooper
  * Add arm part per request from Julien Grall
