If Intel's patches look acceptable then they will be checked in and Sun will
have to do the merge work to get any extra enhancements or features in their
patchset to work on top. That is unless you can see strong reason why Sun's
patches are technically better.
Well, not quite in private, you may remember that I did a presentation at the Xen Summit.

Anyway, of course there is no point in not accepting or delaying a patch for something that is not available yet. I'll comment on the submitted patch, I think I see some issues that we found that aren't addressed in it.
