I got one more question.
I wonder if the backend/frontend driver on PV are supposed to work
well on HVM as well.

My backend/frontend driver worked well on ARM64 PV domains.
However, when I ran the same driver on x86 PV driver domain and HVM
guest domain(PVHVM),
I got a kernel panic in the backend driver as soon as I fired the
probe function in the backend.
More specifically, it's when the backend driver tries to send a
notification through
evtchn_from_irq() function.

Wow,, that's nice!
