Hi all,
this is a reduced and rebased version of the patch series I sent
yesterday "enhanced PV on HVM": this series is based on Linux 2.5.32 and
can be applied now, it includes everything but the pirq remapping
related functions that are not ready to be upstreamed at the moment.

Therefore it just achieves the goal of enabling PV devices in Linux

Any comment, critic or suggestion is very welcome.
