Jeremy, Stefano,

These patches make it possible to inhibit the unplug on the kernel
command line (mostly "Just In Case") and rename xen_emul_unplug=ignore
to the (IMHO) clearer xen_emul_unplug=unnecessary. The third patch is
just a cleanup to platform_pci.h.

I think the first two should be targeting 2.6.36 since they change
command line arguments. The last one could easily wait until 2.6.37.

If you agree with this and want me to I can take care of sending them
upstream (direct to Linus I guess?).

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-upstream/pvhvm

Ian Campbell (3):
      xen: pvhvm: allow user to request no emulated device unplug
      xen: pvhvm: rename xen_emul_unplug=ignore to =unnnecessary
      xen: pvhvm: make it clearer that XEN_UNPLUG_* individual bits
