Question:  Which tree(s) are run through the XenRT test suite?  Is this
only xen-unstable.hg?  If so, then merging 2.6.16-rc1 into unstable
would be very helpful.  Not only for us, but also to make it stable for
the mainline merge.  If the linux-2.6-xen.hg and ext/linux-2.6-merge.hg
trees are regression-tested as well it would be less important.  But
would probably still give us more people testing the code on different
hardware ...
