Hmm.  Well as to the question of what "master" should be:

If it's anything useful at all, it needs to be what you would need to
edit to change the result of the Xen build.  So either it must be
.._TAG or it must be some fast-forwarding branch constructed from the
series of _TAG values.  (Ie, a branch whose commits correspond 1:1
with _TAG values, each commit on the master branch having the previous
master commit as its left parent and the _TAG, which determines the
contents, as the right parent.)
