[Xen-devel] [PATCH] FP instruction in realmode emulation

Hi Keir,
  Our QA team also found that the latest base kernel was failing on the
new real mode emulation code. I looked into it, and found out the
culprit to be guest_mode() call in the do_device_not_available handler. 
  This guest_mode() check over there is no more correct as the guest may
run in hypervisor context in the form of emulation. The attached patch
fixes this issue by removing the check. Another fix would be modifying
the guest_mode() macro. What do you think, Is this check is needed there
now ?
