Because libxc "leaks" a few of the dom0_op structures like dom0_getvcpuinfo_t, dom0_shadow_control_stats_t, etc in its public interface. This could be fixed by making sure all of those structures had wrapper (like xc_dominfo_t).

Those are defined in Xen public header files, not in Linux's privcmd.h.

Yes, sorry, I read the first mail to quickly. This is another of my gripes though (it would be nice if xenctrl.h didn't pull in the Xen public headers too).

About privcmd.h, the users of it are making hypercalls that aren't exposed through libxenctrl. Those users probably ought to add the appropriate plumbing to libxenctrl. This includes the ACM stuff, xenmon/xentrace, and xenstat.
