The following commit:

commit 3d24bbd7dddbea54358a9795abaf051b0f18973c
Author: Stefano Stabellini <stefano.stabellini@eu.citrix.com>
Date: Fri Oct 25 10:41:44 2013 +0000

grant-table: call set_phys_to_machine after mapping grant refs

introduces set_phys_to_machine calls for auto_translated guests
(even on x86) in gnttab_map_refs and gnttab_unmap_refs.
They are necessary to allow the kernel to keep track of foreign grant
mappings: without an IOMMU the kernel needs to take special care of
these pages because they can't be used directly in dma operations unless
translated by swiotlb-xen.
