Here are some changes for xenpaging in xen-unstable.

New to this series since my last post are patch 1 to 5.
They are likely non-controversial and could be applied.

Patches 6 and 7 are required to maintain the machine_to_phys_mapping[]
array properly. Unless there are objections to the deallocation part,
they could be applied.

Patch 8 could be applied as well.

All other changes are not ready yet for inclusion.

As it stands right now, a guest will hang hard with xenpaging once the
balloon driver is loaded in the guest. Its not clear what the issue is,
no memory_op hypercall has been issued yet. xm vcpu-list indicates the
guest makes no progress.  I will debug this further.
