patch #1 and #2 should be backported. This patch is technically not a

backporting it up to Xen 4.9. Hence the ordering of the series.
OK, I understand the motivation, but still feel some oddness in that.

We don't usually backport patch that are not bug fix. So people can upgrade to point release without been worrying of behavior change.

Yes it is odd to write comments and then remove them in a old patch. But I felt comments were useful for backporting.
