Thanks for this work.  I'm just replying to give a status update: I
haven't forgotten this.

It depends on a new feature in the autotest machinery - which would
involve it automatically running "./configure" as well as just "make".
I have a number of other test system changes which are queued up
beforehand, but this is on my list.

Last time you posted this there was an objection that autoconf 2.67
isn't necessarily that widely available.  Did you deliberately use any
2.67 features or can we have a less aggressive PREREQ ?

Also, of course, this patch has rotted slightly and no longer applies
to xen-unstable tip.  When the test system is ready I'll email again
and ask you to rebase.

Does anyone else have any comments ?
