[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 0/9] Add alternative API for Xen PTEs

NOTE: My email address has changed due to some HR management. I have
lost all my previous emails and I could only salvage some of the
comments to v3 from the mailing list archive. I will reply to the
comments from v3 in this v4 series.

This batch adds an alternative alloc-map-unmap-free Xen PTE API to the
normal alloc-free on the xenheap, in preparation of switching to domheap
for Xen page tables. Since map and unmap are basically no-ops now, and
other changes are cosmetic to ease future patches, this batch does not
introduce any functional changes.

Changed since v3:
- change my email address in all patches
- address many style issues in v3
- rebase

Changed since v2:
- split into a smaller series
- drop the clear_page optimisation as Wei suggests
- rebase

Changed since v1:
- squash some commits
- merge bug fixes into this first batch
- rebase against latest master
