Currently none of the hypercalls are implemented. You'll get a guru
meditation with (VERR_GIM_IPE_3) if the guest tries to do hypercalls but
we had to expose availability of hypercalls as Windows expects it to be
there even when it actually doesn't use it. This was needed to get other
more vital things to work like TSC rate reporting, etc.
The basic framework is there, but at the moment, this is unreleased
trunk code - so it's work in progress. Out of curiosity, what hypercall
are you trying to implement by the way?
