Re: [Xen-devel] RFC: Nested VMX patch series 00

Please don't start new threads by reply to an old, unrelated mail -- it
confuses threading.

I'm neither Tim nor Keir but the documentary aspects of this series seem
rather insufficient IMHO, even for an RFC.

You summary lines are mostly verbose boilerplate with very little actual
information and the changelog entries do not generally describe the
change either. Lastly you haven't included a Signed-off-by on at least
some of the patches (maybe that's OK for an RFC but you did sign off
some of them).

Also there are two patch 5's and two patch 12's, a tool such as the hg
email extension would help avoid that sort of thing.
