Persistent grants for to-guest network traffic is a flawed idea.  It
either requires:

a) the backend to memcpy into the mapped grant /and/ the frontend to
memcpy out of the persistently mapped pool.  This is clearly going to be
worse for memory bandwidth than a single grant copy.


b) the backend to accumulate more and more mappings of guest memory,
which is bad for security and it uses too many grant and map track
resources hence it does not scale to many VIFs.
