Looking at the way KVM does it, it appears to detect writes to the TPR
register when they are trapped, and then give the DomU (or whatever KVM
calls it) the address of the instruction so that the DomU driver can
then patch it. Is that what Citrix is doing? Does the current xensource
tree have such a mechanism in it?
