Xen 3.3 should continue to work with older dom0 kernels. However, now that
iommu is *disabled* by default, will this mean that it would continue to
work with older dom0 kernels so long as iommu is not enabled on the Xen
command line? This should be tested and confirmed with this patch applied.
If so, I would accept it.
