Obviously I agree with Tamas here, my only comment would be that in my
humble opinion multipage vm_event ring buffers are probably the way to
go in the long run. I'm not sure if other parts of Xen already employ
such devices (or if indeed there's support for this at all at this
time), but this might be something worth looking into.

Again, this does not imply that there's anything wrong with this patch
or that this is an issue this series should address.
