tools, nice to have:

     * Hotplug script stuff -- internal to libxl (I think, therefore I
       didn't put this under stable API above) but still good to have
       for 4.2? (Roger Pau Monet, patches posted)
     * Block script support -- follows on from hotplug script (Roger
       Pau Monet)
     * libyajl v2 support (Roger Pau Monet, DONE)
     * Configure/control paging via xl/libxl (Olaf Herring)
     * Upstream qemu feature patches:
             * Upstream qemu PCI passthrough support (Anthony Perard)
             * Upstream qemu save restore (Anthony Perard, Stefano
     * Nested-virtualisation (currently should be marked
       experimental,likely to release that way? Consider nested-svm
       separate to nested-vmx. Nested-svm is in better shape)
     * Initial xl support for Remus (memory checkpoint, blackholing)
       (Shriram, patches posted)

FYI, the network buffering module which was part of 2.6.32 pvops tree has
been accepted into upstream net-next tree. I have also posted patches for the
userspace libnl code that talks to the qdiscs via netlink.

I am just waiting for the initial xl patches to go in, after which I could take a stab
at adding network buffering support. Depending on whether Roger's hotplug patches
go in or not, I could add some rudimentary disk replication support, time permitting.
