Hi all,
this patch is for Xen and it is derived from an earlier patch by Shen.
The changes introduced by this patch include:

- add support to some vcpuops and physdevops for HVM domains;

- introduce a new interrupt callback method for HVM domains;

- allow HVM guests to map emulated interrupts to pirqs;

in particular the last point is new and it isn't present in the
corresponding patch from Shen.
This patch doesn't introduce an "enable_pv" hypercall and resets the tsc
offset when the guest binds the VIRQ_TIMER.

What branch/version is this based on?
