The idea with #VE is that it converts the EPT violation to a specific
in-guest interrupt. Interrupts are handled by the kernel, so you will
need a kernel module that is handling that interrupt. Also, you can
take a look at the xen-privcmd kernel module in the Linux kernel to
get an idea on how to issue hypercalls.
