Re: [Xen-devel] Re: [RFC] [PATCH] xen, vtd: Check ownership of a domain context using internal structures

Thanks, Jan.

BTW Keir: this particular instance of the patch caused the customer's
dom0 to crash on boot, so it's not ready to be applied yet.  (Oh the
joys of fixing a bug for a system you don't have on-site.)  I'll send
a new patch when I have one that works properly.
