Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] change dom0 headers path

header naming so we can deal with the unfortunate two-way dependency
these headers have between dom0 and dom0 userspace.

IOW, I agree with you, but I think the patch needs to go in regardless.
In particular, something like my patch will still be needed, even if
it's just private to tools/libxc/.

I'd have a solaris header subdirectory in addition to the linux one. The interfaces may not necessarily stay very similar.
