It seems that yajl 2.0 support is blocked on the autoconf stuff. Can we
disentangle things such that we can support yajl 2.0 in Xen 4.2 and
switch to autoconf afterwards or do we have/want to make the switch to
autoconf for 4.2?

I appreciate the concerns about critical path for 4.2. I presume
autoconf would require more than just checking in the patches,
specifically I'm thinking of the automated test system update and docs.

On the other hand Roger posted v3 of his autoconf support patch and
although I haven't got round to reviewing it yet (sorry) v2's review was
generally positive/minor looking.
