I wouldn't rely on dom0_shadow=1 working at any moment in time as its
used for development purposes rather than production. It's usually
pretty easy to fix.

Yep that's the plan. The Intel folks are currently adding guest ref
count log dirty mode to shadow.c, which may well fix it as a side

As soon as we have the same level of confidence in shadow.c that we do
in shadow32.c we'll switch over for 32b non-pae builds too.
