[Xen-devel] [PATCH v6] Fix interrupt latency of HVM PCI passthrough devices.


since v5 (http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2014-09/msg02868.html)
 - Redid the series based on Jan's feedback
since v4 
 - Ditch the domain centric mechansim.
 - Fix issues raised by Jan.

The big change is on ditching of having a domain centric view and
focus on having it all revolve around 'struct hvm_pirq_dpci'
structure. That all works - except that we must be very careful
with the 'dom' field. The patches optimize the mechanism we use
for injecting interrupts in a guest and reduce the latency of
delievering them to a guest.
