Hmm... I attempted to replace the tools/ioemu source in 3.1.4 with
that from 3.2.1... and find this call in cirrus_vga.c is not supported

I looked into patching 3.1.x with the code necessary to support that
function call, but found myself down a long list of dependencies that
required updating things like mtrr and mm.c which seemed a bit
I figured I'd just remove that memory cache pin call in cirrus_vga.c
and see how that went. (The only other slight change I had to make
was to remove the z position stuff from xenfb.c). Everything build,
but I can't create HVM domains without them getting wedged in a
"weird" state (i.e. -----), so it looks like qemu-dm is bugging out.
Any ideas on how I can port the 0.90 version of QEMU in Xen 3.2.x into
Xen 3.1.x easily?
