I know, but you are basically saying "ok, guys, you'll just manage the
breakage of the big merge, thanks", that's not very convenient, to say
the least.  For instance, where should fix patches be sent to?  Both
qemu-devel and xen-devel?  Just xen-devel and thus make Ian have to push
them to qemu-devel?

Pushing the cleaning changes to Xen first can be done and would entail
much easier to tackle breakage, and the merge back from qemu would then
be trivial, why not doing so?

Thanks for reading.  Ian has _already_ done that hard work.
