That's correct. They don't have to be in separate pages.

There is one more requirement: The pointers must be 8-byte aligned. That
means we may need to explicitly pad things a bit. That quickly becomes
tedious if we do it in every call site; or we will need to provide a
macro to do the calculation correctly.

Another consideration is hypercalls that take variable-length input /
output. Admittedly I haven't seen one that takes variable-length
arguments and needs to do input and output at the same time, I wouldn't
want to paint ourselves into the corner now because sizing
variable-length input and output at the same time can be non-trivial.
