Re: [Xen-devel] how to locate the hypercall address in memory?

I've read the hypercall related code, such as entry.S hypervisor.h ,etc. But the problem is that hypercall functions are implemented in different files while linux package syscalls into glibc and windows ntoskrnl. There is a hypercall table defined in entry.S. But I havn't found any offsets related information. Besides, I've learned that hypercall page is mapped to a fixed address when the guest is initialized, but which address it is and is this address the base address of hypercall table?

Did you at least _try_ to find the answer yourself, e.g. by
grep-ing the hypervisor source for some obvious strings?
