I'll probably take a crack at this soon. From a quick look at the
pvops suspend code, it seems like it may suffer from a race when
multiple suspends are issued that Keir fixed in the 2.6.18 tree some
time ago -- it'd be better to get that fixed before porting the event
In the meantime, it looks like I didn't include fallback support for
checkpointing with xenstore, so Remus doesn't support pvops domu at
all. I should have a patch to support the slow mode out today.
