This reminds me: do we still need xencomm? My understanding is that it
was only used by ia64 (and ppc?) and Linux recently removed support for
it. I don't know whether other OSs use it.
My understanding was that it was a ppc thing, not sure about ia64.

Neither x86 nor arm uses it AFAIK. I'm not entirely sure what its
purpose actually was.

Then it sounds like we should be able to remove it.

I can send a patch unless one of the maintainers wants to do it (i.e. remove relevant files and update Makefiles).
