Looks good to me.  Does Xen have any sysexit/sysret32 equivalent to
return to 32-bit user mode?  If so, it could be worth trying to wire
it up by patching the jz instead of the test instruction.

We can actually make patching a little bit more efficient by replacing the test instruction with 'xor %eax,%eax'. That way we won't need any 'nop's.

Nevermind that, we are looking at flags, not register.
