Unfortunately I doubt it, since Xen is GPLv2 and we wouldn't really be
linking against xvMalloc as a separate library (not least because it would
probably get tailored a bit to get checked into the Xen tree) so the
'Lesser' license probably doesn't apply. If Nitin isn't too attached to
GPLv3 it would certainly be better for us if it used GPLv2, like TLSF.
