I think the important thing is getting the change into xen-unstable, but
I don't think it's necessary for 4.2.

If the patch isn't in 4.2 but does get into xen-unstable then the master branch
of xen-api will be updated to match xen-unstable (via Rok's pull request) and
we'll just have to add the inverse of Rok's patch into the patchqueue for the
debian xapi packages which be rebased against 4.2 (I assume). That doesn't
seem too bad.
