Specification v4.0b at:


for more information.

Patch #1 modifies the viridian code to keep the guest APIC assist pages
mapped for the lifetime of the domain (and incorporates a straightforward
data-structure change).

Patch #2 adds a new viridian code and a configuration option to the
toolstack that, when enabled, allows the local APIC emulation to make use
the APIC assist pages.
