Hi All,
I wanted to know if a clock interrupt from any of the guest OS  interrupt/preempt a hypervisor call in xen?
Eg: say the disk access hy­per­call is in progress and a guest OS on another domain generates a clock interrupt, can this interrupt be handled in the middle of the hypervisor call or does it have to wait?
