Ugh actually no I can't.


Can you re-submit these two patches (and stick on Acked-by Ian on them) and
split the "xen: Add alias to autoload backend driver" in three patches:
 1) the xen-netback (and copy David Miller)
 2) the xen-blkback (and copy Jens Axboe)
 3) the xenbus one

and add Acked-by on the two backends from me and from Ian?

That should be five patches total.

I will take the xenbus patches and have them in a 3.1 branch and the
backends patches will go to the appropiate maintainer.
