Fine in principle. Specific comments:
* powerpc should be cleaned up at the same time to use the common
infrastructure. I don't want duplicated code hanging around in arch/powerpc
* The code you add to common/ should obey the coding style of other files
in that directory
* Arguably we should have an asm-generic for the xencomm guest-access
macros. That's a Linux-ism which I think fits well in this particular case.
