With 3.0.3 in the final stages of testing, now is a good time to re-open the
unstable repository for development. So please form an orderly queue and
start (re-)sending your patches! Bear in mind there is a backlog of fairly
large patches to be considered, so don't expect that your patch will
necessarily end up in the tree this week (or next!).

Features likely to be merged in this development cycle include:
 * kexec/kdump for Xen and domain-0
 * NUMA-aware memory allocator
 * 'v2e' real-mode and device emulation for HVM guests (this will increase
the range of bootloaders supported on VT hardware, including Suse graphical
 * Preliminary support for Intel LT/SMX and AMD Presidio security
 * New 'XenAPI' remote management protocol
 * New save/restore format and migration protocol
 * Lots of other stuff, including plenty of HVM cleanup, improvements to the
command-line tools, ...

Exciting times!
