Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 1/2] Xen: Delay remapping memory of pv-domain

Can these patches be split up?  They're hard to review as-is.  e.g., the
changes to page allocation look they could be split out.

How does this impact Matt Rushton's recent change to ensure the
relocated frames are contiguous?

The change was "xen/setup: Remap Xen Identity Mapped RAM" (4fbb67e3c87).

I think you need to check if this is a PFN for a high page before
updating the mapping.
