I am trying to make a hypercall from a HVM guest. I tried by copying all the xen-libs from Dom0 to DomU. I am getting an error PRIV_CMD not found (obviously). I have searched online and found installing PV on HVM drivers is a way to go about it. However, this won't guarantee that I can make all the hypercalls (correct me if I am wrong).

I am trying to invoke a custom hypercall (done by modifying xen_source in dom0). So, is it not possible to have just the priv cmd interface in the DomU and invoke a hypercall with xen libraries copied from Dom0 (these libs have my custom hypercall included)?
