Jeremy's 'xen/master' branch is at atm.

The difference is that the xenified patches are forward-ports of the old
2.6.18 Xenlinux code (ported by Novell/Suse). Xenlinux code/patches
won't be accepted into upstream linux, it's too intrusive.

While jeremy's tree is re-write for upstream Linux pvops framework, and
is aimed for upstream inclusion.
