Right. I wasn't even thinking about this as, as Andrew said, I don't
think there is anything we can do about it!

However, my point above kind of was, if, at some point you issue the
XEN_DOMCTL_domain_numainfo hypercall, and then sum what you get in each
cell of the array, you have the total amount of memory which, *if*
nothing changed, is exactly what you got from an instance of the other
one, issued some time before (or later).

If something changed, then yes you're screwed, but the bottom line, I
think is, if you think you may need the information broken down in
nodes, use XEN_DOMCTL_domain_numainfo, which gives you that and,
indirectly, also the total size.

Does that make sense?
