Hi Linus,

Here's a couple of Xen bugfixes:

    * Suppress the extended topology leaf in cpuid; such details are
      meaningless in a virtual cpu
    * Make hvc_xen poll when the output buffer is full rather than
      depend on a workqueue to do it.  Otherwise we can lose oops info
      on crashes when scheduling has been disabled.


The following changes since commit 973df35ed9ff7806403e793a2ad7e9bd4c2fd2a9:
  Jeremy Fitzhardinge (1):
        xen: set up mmu_ops before trying to set any ptes

are available in the git repository at:

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git bugfix

Jeremy Fitzhardinge (2):
      xen/hvc: make sure console output is always emitted, with explicit polling
      xen: mask extended topology info in cpuid
