I think these are likely for 2.6.37 but if possible the ethtool one
would be nice to have for 2.6.36 since 2.6.36 adds PVHVM support for Xen
(paravirtual drivers for fully-virtualised guests) so it is useful to be
able to see explicitly if eth0 is emulated or PV without having to infer
xen-netfront from:
        # ethtool -i eth0
        Cannot get driver information: Operation not supported

The following changes since commit da5cabf80e2433131bf0ed8993abc0f7ea618c73:
  Linus Torvalds (1):
        Linux 2.6.36-rc1

are available in the git repository at:

  git://xenbits.xensource.com/people/ianc/linux-2.6.git for-netdev/xen-netfront

Ian Campbell (2):
      xen: use less generic names in netfront driver.
      xen: netfront: support the ethtool drvinfo hook.
