Re: [Xen-devel] Modify cr0 at dom0

I'v tried the way to modify CR0 by writing to it directly. But I got the following error:
(XEN) traps.c:1768:d0 Attempt to change unmodifiable CR0 flags.

Directly modifying CR0 by assembly language seems to modify the real physical register on the  real CPU,
but I just want to modify dom's virtual CR0 in the vcpu structure, since I want to modify some memory area
in dom0's kernel which is protected by dom0's vcpu's CR0.WP bit.

Sure, there's an example here:
