    Hi Andi,
    
    This patch series implements the Linux Xen guest in terms of the
    paravirt-ops interface.  The features in implemented this patch series
    are:
     * domU only
     * UP only (most code is SMP-safe, but there's no way to create a new vcpu)
     * writable pagetables, with late pinning/early unpinning
       (no shadow pagetable support)
     * supports both PAE and non-PAE modes
     * xen console
     * virtual block device (blockfront)
     * virtual network device (netfront)
    
    The patch series is in two parts:
    
    1-12: cleanups to the core kernel, either to fix outright problems,
          or to add appropriate hooks for Xen
    13-21: the Xen guest implementation itself
    
    I've tried to make each patch as self-explanatory as possible.  The
    series is based on git changeset
    ec2f9d1331f658433411c58077871e1eef4ee1b4 +
    x86_64-2.6.20-git8-070213-1.patch.
    
    Changes since the previous posting:
    - rebased
    - addressed review comments:
     - deal with missing vga hardware better
     - deal with Andi's comments
     - clean up header file placement
     - update netfront, and move it into drivers/net
    
    I looked at linking in xen-head.S rather than including it into
    xen-head.S, but it seems to provoke linker bugs, so I've left it as-is
    for now.
    
    Thanks,
    	J
