Was any consensus reached on how to cleanly allow an HVM guest to map
grant references?  I'm in need of this feature for a FreeBSD x86_64 HVM
driver domain.  FreeBSD x86_64 does not support full PV, and I need
the ability to run backends in these domains for my application.  The
patches from this thread would likely work for me, but like the author
of them, I'd rather use a publicly supported Xen interface than to
have a locally maintained solution.
