   I'm afraid workarounds always last longer than expected, so we should
still try to do this cleanly.  Xen 3.0.1 is already out so the time
pressure to get this fixed is lessened.  Being ia64 specific Xen code, I
think we should try to do it right, get it into xen-ia64-unstable, then
push it to xen-unstable.  Thanks,
