Since the semantics of the tree is a bit different from 2.0-testing
might it make sense to use a different name, e.g. pre-3.0?

Also, will the 3.0-testing tree be appropriate to roll in
common-izing changes (i.e. abstracting out x86-isms) in
drivers and xc?  These should be low risk to x86_* as they
will simply be syntactic, e.g. moving inline code into macros
or separate functions.  If so, I'd like to arrange some time
to work on this at OLS?
