Hi all,

not long after posting the last round of patches I went on holidays
for two weeks. Good for me. Not so good for the code.

I'm not entirely sure how to proceed with the patches,
as although they were marked as rfc, there hasn't really been
any discussion (that I have seen anyway).

What I propose doing is up-porting the changes to the latest
xen-unstable.hg - I assume there have been some changes since
I posted a few weeks ago - and reposting with a view to having
the patches merged by Ian and Keir. I think that the changes
are up to a standard where they can be included in unstable -
especially as no one has voiced any objections to them.

On a related note. I have prepared a back-port of the
various pass-through changes that are present in the unstable
tree to the 3.4-testing tree. On top of this I have back-ported
the multi-function changes. I hope to have this finished very soon
and will send an email to xen-devel once it is ready.
