Ok, next respin will have version with that turned on for review.

Hmm, that calls more for a patch reordering in the xen patch series to
make it more bisect-friendly (i.e. first put in the new backend drivers,
then update xen_machine_pv.c).  Right now each step single step builds,
but there are a few inbetween which are not fully functional due to old
backends being turned off and new ones not patched in yet ...

Even right now the patch queue is uncomfortably long for my taste.
