Nothing immediately.  This is compatible with all versions of libxc in
existance, but we need to start a thread discussing HVM guest physical
address space.

We've also just found a passive performance hole, where enabling any
kind of PCI Passthrough causes Windows and Linux's grant table mappings
to turn uncached because they are allocated inside what the OS thinks is

I'll start a thread when I'm a little less busy.
