Sorry for the delay and for bothering you with another question. In order to
ensure that the 1:1 mapping of a new range of I/O memory does not clash with the
existing layout, we should then check that nothing else has been mapped to that
address range in the domU's address space?

I think checking is not the right solution, what will you do if the range is effectively clash to another one?

On a previous mail (see http://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2014-03/msg00036.html), Ian has proposed to exposed the layout of the host to the guest. That will allow you to map the memory in 1:1.

I will need this item for device passthrough soon. I can take care of this item if you want.
