Please do not apply these patches.  They will make my life very

As I've said before, I won't apply these patches until there's agreement that this is the right approach for QEMU and upstream Xen so no worries there.

If Gerd wants to rewrite the Xen/qemu support he should come to
xen-devel and submit his patches there.

Actually, I think Gerd is taking the right approach. How Xen (and KVM for that matter) integrates with QEMU is something that ought to be discussed in both communities. That will make the long term merge prospects easier. Working things out on xen-devel doesn't necessarily mean you're any closer to getting into QEMU if qemu-devel has been left out of the discussion.
