    The thing is others and I (and you) are working on getting paravirt_ops
    working for x86_64. There's a lot of overlap between i386 and x86_64.
    Right now the i386 is ahead of x86_64 and the code seems to be put more
    in the arch/i386 arch. So now we are going to introduce a
    new ../../i386 hack to get to a shared paravirt_shared.c(?). Or do we
    just continue on keeping the x86_64 as a separate entity, with a lot of
    duplicate code?

    I'm OK with either way. I just wanted to set a standard while it's still
    early enough to set one.
