[Xen-devel] [patch] "xenif" dom0_ops

This patch changes the dom0_ops structures as discussed in the thread 
"32/64-bit hypercall interface". Keir, I added a struct inside XENIF_PTR() to 
catch direct users in the general code; it was quite useful to have the 
compiler identify those spots, and it also protects against swapping 
arguments to pack/unpack.

Dave Barrera helped me test this patch on x86_32 hardware, with both LTP and 
xm-test (which stresses the dom0_ops a fair amount). There was an additional 
failure: the save/restore/migrate tests timed out. As I understand it though, 
those tests frequently time out, so may not be related to this patch.

Keir, is this patch ok?
