Hmm.  I suspect xen's direct paging mode makes that quite intrusive as
the kvm mmu code would have to know about this extra p2m translation
step to get the shadow/ept/ntp tables right.  Given that this most
likely would be a odd and rarely tested use case I don't think this
would be a good idea ...
