Ok, then I'll put:

+       /*
+        * According to Xen on ARM ABI (xen/include/public/arch-arm.h):
+        * all memory which is shared with other entities in the system
+        * (including the hypervisor and other guests) must reside in memory
+        * which is mapped as Normal Inner Write-Back Outer Write-Back
+        * Inner-Shareable.
+        */
        vma->vm_page_prot = vm_get_page_prot(vma->vm_flags);
Please let me know if this is not what you want
