Hi all

I'm playing around with the prospect of getting the binary nvidia
drivers going on in my dom0 machine, based on the patch supplied by
Yong Liu in 
.  I am running xen-unstable pulled from hg this afternoon.  My system
is an x86_64 (p-d 920), with a pci-e nvidia geforce 6200te card.

In the patch, I changed the io_remap_page_range calls to
io_remap_pnf_range; this seemed to be appropriate based on various
postings that I've read on the xen-devel ml.  However, phys_to_machine
was still being reported as not exported from the kernel, so I added
an EXPORT_SYMBOL call in the kernel.  This seems to have worked, but I
am rather inexperienced when it comes to kernel hacking so I don't
really know if this was the right hting to do :)

Now, it compiles just fine, but kills the dom0 system as soon as I try
to insmod it.  The register dump and stacktrace from the hypervisor

>From the sounds of the message that I linked above, and from his
posting on the nvnews forums, he was indeed able to get the driver to
load and to allow 3d accel.  So, I know this _should_ work, but it's a
matter of figuring out what's causing it to crash!  I suspect that
it's trying to read from memory not allocated to the dom0 machine, but
I really don't know.  Does anyone have any advice?
