OK, good.

Yes, the second sounds like the right answer.

Its not at all clear to me what Xen is objecting to here.  There are a
few paths where it can end up at could_not_pin in get_page_from_l1e(),
but I don't know which one is happening here.  I think it's the "if (
unlikely(real_pg_owner != pg_owner) )" conditional, but I don't know
what real_pg_owner means here.
