Re: [Xen-devel] Grant tables from dom0 userspace?

I would like to share some pages between my domU graphics frontend

am doing this with my own scheme, but presumably grant tables would be
the correct solution.

Is it possible to use grant tables from dom0 userspace? There used to
be a file called tools/libxc/xc_gnttab.c but that seems to be gone

I think blktap gives an example how to do this, but it might be specific to aio right now. You could probably use some of the same hooks to provide a device file that you could mmap(), passing grant refs to map. I cc'ed Andy Warfield in case he has any ideas...

The only other supported mechanism is the xc_foreign mapping interfaces.
