Yeah, this can be added. Probably not a bad idea, really. I actually
have some code to test if a machine has EPT enabled or not (by
borrowing some of the Xen start-up code which checks for things like
EPT), so it should be easy enough to roll that into functions that
xenpaging can use. I'll get on that right away.
