Thanks. The existing code here is pretty unfortunate.
In xc_domain_dumpcore_via_callback where you make your change, "dinfo"
refers to a struct domain_info_context which is local to that
function. But in the called function xc_core_arch_map_p2m_rw, "dinfo"
refers to another identical structure allocated locally to the small
wrapper function xc_core_arch_map_p2m. All rather tangled.
But, anyway, your change is correct so I have applied it.
Next time, though, can you please be sure to add a Signed-off-by line,
to signify your certification in accordance with the Developer's
Certificate of Origin ? In this case I'll go ahead as it's only a
couple of lines.
