Okay, makes sense.

The current x86 implementation mmio which isn't handled by xen VMM
are passed to qemu-dm.
On the other hand, the current xen/ia64 check _PAGE_IO and
if _PAGE_IO it is passed to qemu-dm, otherwise panic_domain()
So the behaviour should be changed such that if load/store on 
the unpresent p2m entry is passed to qemu-dm like x86.
