Well from my perspective:

1) It's too late to put into my tree because the merge window has
   already started.  If you want me to include this you should have
   asked me to pull it in days if not weeks ago.

2) Your tree is absolutely not in a state I can pull it.  It has lots
   of completely unrelated commits which are not in net-next-2.6 which
   in no way should I be pulling into my tree.

When you want me to take changes, your tree should be based upon mine.
And when I pull from your tree I should get only your specific
xen-netfront driver changes, and nothing more.
