We want to have an interface can be used by non-Linux domains (both dom0
and domU) as well though, so please bear this in mind.

Historically we've not always been good at this when the hypercall
interface is strongly tied to a particular guest implementation (in some
sense this is the problem with the current kexec hypercall).

Also what makes for a good syscall interface does not necessarily make
for a good hypercall interface.
