Subject[PATCH v2 4/6] x86-64/xen: Enable the vvar mapping
Date
Xen needs to handle VVAR_PAGE, introduced in git commit:
9fd67b4ed0714ab718f1f9bd14c344af336a6df7
x86-64: Give vvars their own page

Otherwise we die during bootup with a message like:

(XEN) mm.c:940:d10 Error getting mfn 1888 (pfn 1e3e48) from L1 entry
8000000001888465 for l1e_owner=10, pg_owner=10
(XEN) mm.c:5049:d10 ptwr_emulate: could not get_page_from_l1e()
[ 0.000000] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
[ 0.000000] IP: [<ffffffff8103a930>] xen_set_pte+0x20/0xe0
