Have you tested both HVM and PV guests with save/restore, migration, and
*failed* save/restore (e.g., by forcing an error in xc_domain_save.c)? The
last needs care because qemu-dm must be kept around until the last moment,
in case the save or migration fails.

Are these patches intended to be applied now, or are they RFC?
