I wish it was that easy. Rafael's tree carries a commit that is
missing from both
Konrad's and Stefano's tree.
"PM: Make CONFIG_PM depend on (CONFIG_PM_SLEEP || CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME)"
@@ -38,7 +38,7 @@ config XEN_MAX_DOMAIN_MEMORY

5/5 is based on this patch and that is the reason I had to create a
hybrid tree and base
my patches on it. If this conflict can be easily resolved by whoever
is doing the
merging, then I can resend the 5/5 alone based on stefano's tree and
Ian's idea of
pushing 2,3,5/5 through xen tree would work.

This "everything else has settled down" phrase has been causing lot of
I asked Konrad to pull my git branch, hoping that his test setup(and
his kernel config) would
not face the same issue mine (PVonHVM not shutting down).
The puzzling part is, the same patch series worked neatly during rc4
(Ian's tree) - the first time I
submitted my patches.
