What dependencies does it have on the rest of the xen changes?  In
general I like to avoid basing branches on xen/master, because it makes
them fairly brittle to rebase or otherwise rearrange.  Ideally I like to
base each topic branch on a mainline kernel version (like v2.6.31), or
if there are too many dependencies on other Xen topic branches, the most
specific one that covers the dependencies (xen/core, xen/dom0/core, for
