Perhaps someone more into the hypervisor side of things (Keir?) could be wise 
too ?

I could imagine a discussion could go to how much Xen hypervisor wise has 
to/could change to make the kernel changes more clean and less intrusive, as 
that seems to be the old discussion that keeps popping up from time to time.
It also seems people are hesitant to get the patches in mainline because there 
doesn't seems to be much of an outline of what will come after the first 
perhaps less intrusive patches and fear there could be some crap later that is 
less easy to refuse since a part is allready in.
Any willingness and vision on that part could reduce the hesitation to include 
Xen patches in mainline i think.
