Yes.  We were using http:// because we didn't have a git server on
xenbits, but now we do.

Keir: this patch is for xen-unstable but given that the git daemon is
a property of the xenbits system configuration rather of the specific
branch, it wouldn't be unreasonable to apply it to the older trees


use git smart server protocol for qemu tree by default

xenbits supports the git protocol now, which is much faster (and
produces less noise in the build log too).
