    Subject[PATCH v4 0/7] PV on HVM: receive interrupts as xen events
    Hi all,
    this patch series introduces some performance improvements for xen PV on
    HVM guests: interacting with the emulated APIC is slow because it causes
    traps in the hypervisor while receiving xen events using the vector callback
    mechanism allow us to skip all that. For this reason we remap interrupts
    and MSIs into xen pirqs so that from that point on we can receive them
    as xen events instead.
    This series is based on Konrad's pcifront series:

    http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/10/12/207

    and requires a patch to xen and a patch to qemu-xen (both sent to the
    list).


    New changes in v4:
    - xen_hvm_register_pirq has been made static;

    - the functions in arch/x86/pci/xen.c that depends on CONFIG_ACPI have
    been ifdef'ed.


    The list of patches with diffstat follows:

    Jeremy Fitzhardinge (2):
    acpi: use indirect call to register gsi in different modes
    xen: add xen hvm acpi_register_gsi variant

    Stefano Stabellini (5):
    xen: support pirq != irq
    xen: get the maximum number of pirqs from xen
    xen: implement xen_hvm_register_pirq
    xen: support GSI -> pirq remapping in PV on HVM guests
    xen: map MSIs into pirqs
