Our design strategy is to reuse ia32/Xen VMX design as possible.  That
Device Model, the same DM in ia32 VMX, runs on Domain0 to service IO
requrests coming from VT DomainN.  We need to build Event Channel as
host driver runs in Domain0; we will borrow design from VBD of ia32 VMX
DomainN.  We also need to build corresponding hypercalls.
We also have guest firmware implemented to service DomainN boot/runtime
