Hello, Adam:
	Now i fixed l4io a little and add the hpet device after the tpm device 
in the l4io/server/src/static_cfg_x86.c and now i could map the hpet device
into the virtual device. I could read/write the hpet device directly. This is
a important progress for vtimer server implementation.  If i make more i
could report to you.
	Thanks for your kind remind.
