Now I managed to try it out. As I expected, Dom0 does copy the mapped
page. The peak throuhput I could get was 6.6 Gbps, however it could keep
that only for short periods, I guess when the unmapping was ideally
batched. The average was 5.53.
On the same machine the same 10 min iperf session, without my patches
made the peak 5.9 while the average was 5.65. Do you think it is an
acceptable regression?
I used 3.12 Dom0 and guest kernel, the guest transmitted though a 10Gb
card to a bare metal box.
I plan to look further if we can avoid somehow this:

So then this scenario can benefit from grant mapping.
