A tiny data point about these domains.  They are hosted by osuosl.org,
which uses xen systems running with the current dom0 patch set.  Because
those patches are out-of-tree, they have a hard time updating kernel
versions, and generally lag kernel.org releases by a lot, which is not
always a good thing.

So getting the dom0 patches into mainline will make their lives much
easier, and more secure.
