Thread-topic: write page table in user mode
        I found vmware workstation 5 in xen will write page table in
user mode. I don't know the rational behind this...
        XEN doesn't emulate writing page table in user mode. If I get
rid of this constraint, vmware will go a little bit further. 
        Is it safe to remove this constraint?

Best Regards,
Disheng, Su
