Hi Wassim,

I'm not sure what the support is for Netmap in Xen in general.  Netmap has a 
slightly different model of page management (the dom0 would export pages to the 
guest, which writes into the NIC buffers directly) that could map onto 
Netfront, but I'm not sure if this work has been done.

Once Netmap is available to a domU (Linux or FreeBSD), we would look into 
adding Mirage support.

Hope that helps,
