So should I s/PVH/HVMlite/g?

From user perspective that will be almost true. I am not sure it should be classified as PV mode anymore since it's really an HVM guest without any devices. But it's not there yet so it's too early to point your editor there.

BTW, I don't think the flowchart in the wiki is correct as far as PVH is concerned --- you can't use PVH unless HVM (and, in fact, PVHVM) is supported.


Or too much of a simlification? thanks,
