[Xen-devel] [RFC PATCH 0/3] Implement the XEN_DOMCTL_memory_mapping hypecall for arm32


this patchset adds a first attempt of implementation of the
XEN_DOMCTL_memory_mapping hypercall for the arm32 architecture.

As a part of my thesis project (developed with Paolo Valente,
in Italy, [1]), I am porting an automotive-grade real-time OS
(Evidence's ERIKA Enterprise, [2], [3]) on Xen on ARM, and the
port of the OS as a domU has required the OS to be able to access
peripherals performing memory-mapped I/O; as a consequence, the
I/O-memory ranges related to such peripherals had to be made
accessible to the domU.

I have been working on this patchset for the last weeks after reading
a related xen-devel discussion ([4]), and I had no idea that Eric Trudeau
had already proposed to this mailing list an implementation of the
hypercall ([5], [6]). Any comment is obviously welcome on this point, and if
he wants so I will of course add his Signed-off-by to the patches.

Any feedback about the patches is more than welcome. The code has been
tested with Linux v3.13 as dom0 and ERIKA Enterprise as domU.
