[CentOS-virt] Pages In and Read Sectors in Guest Domain

I have been doing some performance tests with Xen and CentOS and have found
some strange statistics when comparing the virtual memory (/proc/vmstat)
and I/O (/proc/diskstat) statistics between the Domain 0 and guests.
When I look at the "pgpgin" statistic it is exactly the same as the "read
sectors" in Dom0. However, when I look at the same statistics in the
guest, the "read sectors" is exactly 2x "pgpgin".
I have tried this on 2 different versions, each on a different physical
server. Here is an example of the statistics over a 30 second period (while
running a benchmark in Dom1) in the Dom0 and Guest Domain.
pgpgin read sectors
Dom0 1698024 1698024
Dom1 848412 1696824
I have looked at some various settings to see if I could explain it. I
can't tell if the Dom1 guest kernel is reporting incorrectly, or there is
some other explanation. If anyone has any ideas about this I would
appreciate any feedback.
