Log Message:

For an unknown reason (to me) Xen refuses to update VM translations
when the entry is pointing back to itself (which is precisely
what our recursive VM model does). So enable the functions that take
care of this, which will avoid all sort of memory corruption upon restore
leading domU to trample upon itself.

Please report this Xen behaviour to xen-devel.


Save/restore works again for amd64. The occasional domU frontend corruption is
still present, but is harmless to dom0. Now we have a working shell and
ddb inside domU, that helps debugging a tiny bit.

XXX pull-up to -6.
