Subject[PATCH v7 00/13] introduce the Xen PV Calls frontend
Hi all,

this series introduces the frontend for the newly introduced PV Calls

PV Calls is a paravirtualized protocol that allows the implementation of
a set of POSIX functions in a different domain. The PV Calls frontend
sends POSIX function calls to the backend, which implements them and
returns a value to the frontend and acts on the function call.

For more information about PV Calls, please read:

This patch series only implements the frontend driver. It doesn't
attempt to redirect POSIX calls to it. The functions exported in
pvcalls-front.h are meant to be used for that. A separate patch series
will be sent to use them and hook them into the system.

Changes in v7:
- define sock_mapping earlier
- make sure that every patch in the series builds
- call pvcalls_front_free_map(map->passive.accept_map) without the
- remove now unused bool lock parameter to pvcalls_front_free_map
