[Xen-devel] [PATCH v11 02/12] xen/pvh: Define what an PVH guest is.

From: Mukesh Rathor <mukesh.rathor@xxxxxxxxxx>

Which is a PV guest with auto page translation enabled
and with vector callback. It is a cross between PVHVM and PV.

The Xen side defines PVH as (from docs/misc/pvh-readme.txt,
with modifications):

"* the guest uses auto translate:
 - p2m is managed by Xen
 - pagetables are owned by the guest
 - mmu_update hypercall not available
* it uses event callback and not vlapic emulation,
* IDT is native, so set_trap_table hcall is also N/A for a PVH guest.

For a full list of hcalls supported for PVH, see pvh_hypercall64_table
in arch/x86/hvm/hvm.c in xen.  From the ABI prespective, it's mostly a
PV guest with auto translate, although it does use hvm_op for setting
callback vector."

We don't have yet a Kconfig entry setup as we do not
have all the parts ready for it - so we piggyback
on the PVHVM config option. This scaffolding will
be removed later.
