I am not going to answer on the patch itself but the process.

Any series (i.e more than one patch) should contain a cover letter with a rough summary of the goal of the series.

Furthermore, this 3 patches series has been received as 3 separate threads (i.e in-reply-to is missing). This is making difficult to know that all the patches belongs to the same series. In general, all patches are send as in-reply-to the cover letter. So all the patches sticks together in one thread.

The cover letter can be generated via git format-patch --cover-letter. Threading is done automatically with git-send-email when all the patches as passed in arguments.

For more details how to do it, you can read:



Hi Pawel, 

thank you for submitting the patch series. 

We had a couple of new starters recently who followed a similar pattern to you. As a result of this, I recently updated the following docs

As for Julien's comment on the threading: see the --thread and --cover-letter option as described in the Sending a Patch Series

I have not had time to play with git series yet. If anyone in your team uses it let me know

In any case: if you follow the instructions the entire submission process and dealing with review comments becomes much easier. 

As a newcomer, to contributing to Xen, I would greatly appreciate if you could let me know of any issues with the docs, such that we can fix them
