Libxenvchan is not PV specific AFAICT and it provides a really robust
interface to establish communication channels between domUs. It
usually is a better way to exchange lots of information instead of the
fairly limited vm_event ring page as libxenvchan can automatically
adjust the shared mem region to match the data being exchanged and do
it UDP or TCP style. I don't really see a downside in having this type
of event added, I was just wondering what the rationale is behind it
