Re: [Xen-devel] Mapping Data between Dom0 and DomU

Andrew, Ian, and Paul - thanks so much for the help.  I need to study the code 
and I'll try to get a channel going between two Linux VMs.  Latency and 
performance are critical (~500 MB/s), so I'll probably have more questions 
about best practices for large data buffers.  However, once I have a working 
solution for Linux, I'll work with Paul (and the Windows PV developers) to use 
the current Windows PV interfaces to generate a solution between Windows Server 
2012 and Linux.

Thanks for the help,

A big +1 from me. If you need any assistance then please join the win-pv-devel 
mailing list and we can give you some pointers. There are already Windows 
kernel PV interfaces for many Xen features.
