AFAIK it's not used in 3.0.4.  Writeable pagetable is emulated by trapping 
updates to leaf pagetables and applying them individually.

I believe there are some explicit calls in XenLinux to make batching of 
updates possible in the cases where this is important (which is what 
writeable pagetables was originally there fore).

This approach has been shown to have higher performance than the unhook/rehook
