There's something else that should also be clarified: I've renamed the
vm_event.h struct to vm_event_write_ctrlreg, and changed
monitor.mov_to_cr* to monitor.write_ctrlreg*, but left
xc_monitor_mov_to_cr() in libxc, and mov_to_cr in the domctl part (I
thought it fit with mov_to_msr(), etc.). Should I change that to
write_ctrlreg as well? On the one hand, mov_to_cr seems to be consistent
with the previous interface, and on the other it's not consistent with
the name changes the patch has made.
