[Xen-devel] RE: [PATCH][VTD] fixing vt-d/ept page table sharing in xen-4.1

Probably the right thing to do is set this flag in p2m_alloc_table(), after 
calling pagetabel_from_mfn() and before calling iommu_share_p2m_table().   
However, this will require passing the domain pointer to p2m_alloc_table().

What do you think Tim?

Wouldn't you need to revert this change in the error paths that sit
between the new and old places of where this happens/happened?

And is it certain that setting this earlier won't confuse other code?
