For HVM domains, all the mapping functions take PFNs, so I think it
should Just Work.  (Memory operations on both PV and HVM memory use
'GFNs', i.e. the same namespace that the guest puts in its own

For HVM domains, I don't think it's possible; for PV guests you need the
assitance of the guest itself.  But because all the mapping APIs &c take
GFNs, hopefully it's not necessary.
