    We have a seg structure which is similar to some structure you probably
    have which describes the grant. One of the things hanging off that
    seg structure is essentially a page table containing PFNs with their
    respective flags (XPMEM specific and not the same as the pfn flags in
    the processor page tables).

    Thanks,
