Guest domain is up and running. Printing code is invoked via 'xm save'.

After reading your note, I tried printing all non-zero rpns in guest domain.
There are lots- in fact 'bios' got a watchdog timeout and reverted out of SLOF
Think I was spooked yesterday, since even page 0 had no rpn address,
and I thought every domain had to have 2 or 4 pages setup beginning at 0 ?
