Re: [Xen-devel] Map NVRAM to domU kernels

That is what I am planning to do for my thesis. Thus any advice and pointers would be really helpful.
Thanks for the quick reply Jan. Appreciate your help.

The range being marked as reserved, Xen will treat it as such
and not touch it at all. If you know that this an NVRAM region,
you'll have to write code driving its use.
