If the op is really meant to only be used on grants, then yes,
XENMEM_ as well as MMUEXT_ would seem the wrong ones (but
then you also incorrectly implemented it, as right now it permits
flushes on non-foreign pages).

But again I don't see why Dom0 can't track state for the mappings
it establishes - after all, a grant-ref would be the most natural
thing to pass in here.
