Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v7 00/15] Alternate p2m: support multiple copies of host p2m

Hi all

As I understand it most pending issues of this series are minor and the
final day for committing is tomorrow. Checking this series in as-is is
going to create some technical debt that either maintainers or Intel
developers need to pay back in the future (and Intel has signed up for
that, thank you). The clock is ticking but there is still disagreement,
so I would like to share some of my thoughts from a strategic point of

I think this feature is important and gives us strategic advantages. I'm
not aware of other open source hypervisors that support such feature. It
is essential to VM introspection. It will help Xen project catch up in
NFV market. The feature is interesting in its own right I would imagine
power users / developers can do many interesting things with it.

From my point of view the benefits out-weight technical debt.
