Subject[PATCH v8 6/7] xen/pvh: Add memory map pointer to hvm_start_info struct
Date
The start info structure that is defined as part of the x86/HVM direct boot
ABI and used for starting Xen PVH guests would be more versatile if it also
included a way to pass information about the memory map to the guest. This
would allow KVM guests to share the same entry point.
