Subject[PATCH 1/4] Prep for paravirt: Be careful about touching BIOS address space
From
Date
(Andrew had already taken that last one, I meant to send this)

Subject: Be careful about touching BIOS address space

BIOS ROM areas may not be mapped into the guest address space, so be careful
when touching those addresses to make sure they appear to be mapped.
