OK, here's round two.  I divided the patches up into three parts:

hypervisor: fixes to the hypervisor (mostly shadow.c) so that it knows how to handle fully translated guests properly.

builder: adds the "linuxtranslate" builder, which will build a full translated domains. (Updated since yesterday to more closely parallel the normal linux builder.)

domU: adds "CONFIG_XEN_SHADOW_MODE" option, which allows a domU to run in full translate mode. This basically disables access to the m2p table, and disables the mm_pin optimizations. (Not compatible yet, not sure why.)

Each of these patches should be able to be applied independently.
