    So it isn't relevant for Xenner?

    That said, I'd like to be able to emulate the Xen HVM hypercalls. But
    in any case, they hypercall implementation has to be in the kernel, so I
    don't see why the MSR shouldn't be. Especially if we need to support
    tricky bits like continuations.

    Nasty. The hypervisor has to remember all of the pages, so it can
    update them for live migration. And it has to forget about them on
    reset. And something needs to be done for kexec...
