I am posting the linux xencomm code for review.  I'd plan to submit soon 
unless comments/remarks.

This patch has 3 aims:
* xencomm descriptor creation (drivers/xen/core/xencomm.c)
* linux issued hypercalls translation (drivers/xen/core/xencomm_hcall.c)
* privcmd hypercalls translation (drivers/xen/privcmd/xencomm.c)

Most of this comes from powerpc people.  Because they use a private linux 
tree, the patches have never been submitted.
However the patches have been seriously modified by myself in order to be used 
on ia64.  I tried to made them more generic so that they can be shared by 
ia64 and powerpc.
