The main thing that I am concerned about is, that in the
case that dom0 panics, and we are asking the hypercall to take a dump
for us, do we really want a copy_from guest in that path?
It seems to me that its best to have that path as simple as possible.
But I do argree that it comes at the expense of making the interface
a bit unclean.
