The important change is:


+               if (PageForeign(page)) {
+                       get_page_grant_ref(page, &copy_gop->source.domid,
+                                          &copy_gop->source.u.ref);


+               struct xen_page_foreign *foreign;
+               foreign = xen_page_foreign(page);
+               if (foreign) {
+                       copy_gop->source.domid = foreign->domid;
+                       copy_gop->source.u.ref = foreign->gref;
