For domU, yes.

I think that would indeed be the right thing to do.

In addition we need to modifiy arch_get_xen_caps to only include
xen-X.Y-armv7l in the result if the hardware does in fact support domU
as 32-bit. The toolstack will consult this when trying to figure out if
a domain can be built (I think the end result is that
XEN_DOMCTL_set_address_size should never fail because it should never be
called if it could fail, but add the check anyway)

Not sure what you are asking here. If you try and build a 32-bit domain
on a 64-bit-only platform then the above changes will cause it to fail,
which is the right thing to happen. Does that answer your question?
