I don't understand what does not makes sense here. Of course the one you
described is more elaborate and explanatory and I agree I just wrote a short 
one from perspective of PM hibernation related to Xen domU. 
All I explained was why teardown is needed, what is the solution and 
what will happen if we do not clear those mappings.
