        !            18: 
        !            19: NetBSD Dom0 kernels currently operate in fully PV mode.
        !            20: On amd64, this has the same performance drawbacks as for PV
        !            21: mode in domU.
        !            22: Instead, PVH mode provides a HVM container over pagetable
        !            23: management, while virtualising everything else. This mode is
        !            24: available on dom0, we attempt to support it.
        !            25: 
        !            26: Note: Xen/Linux is moving to this dom0 pvh support model.

        !            36: 
        !            37: The bootstrap path may need to be tweaked for dom0
