it wants a manual patch into drivers/xen/blktap/device.c because it's
rolled into that combo of renaming plus overall feature upgrades I have
in that series. 

It's the only pending bugfix, quite an obvious one actually. It's been
rare enough unless provoked like Gerd did, but we found it first in XCP
so it actually tends to happen.

Can you just pick it, and push through to stable straight away?
