Wasn't aware of that patch, i will try it out.

I planned to try out the qdisk/qemu blktap implementation a bit. The missing 
xen-blkback in officiall 2.6.39 was just a good opportunity for this.

And from what i have read the future of blktap might be more in qemu then in 
the kernel, so thats another reason to get used to it.

Ok, then no reason to dig deeper into that. So my current impression is that 
its better not use qdisk/qemu-blktap until xen can use upstream qemu?
