Hey Jeremy,

Please pull from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/konrad/xen.git pv/fbfront

It has fixes that made it in v2.6.33 for the Xen Frame buffer:

  xen pvfb: Inhibit VM_IO flag to be set on vmalloc-ed framebuffers.
  fb-defio: Inhibit VM_IO flag to be set on vmalloc-ed framebuffers.
  fb-defio: If FBINFO_VIRTFB is defined, do not set VM_IO flag.

Or perhaps we should ask Greg KH to put those fixes on his stable tree
and then you would merge them from him?

I've merged it anyway. I'm not sure they're stable material because the bug they fix only manifests when there's dom0 support in the kernel, I think. Does plain 2.6.32 show problems with pvfb?

BTW, I can't get absolute (tablet) mode working with pvfb any more. Have you noticed that?
