I'm not aware of any, but the general rule is bug fixes only, with
possible exceptions for, say, X.Y.1. And bug fixes which e.g. consist
of a re-write of a significant portion of the code don't normally count
either (unless for a very important feature), nor would such that
deal with problems in a mostly unusable feature (as I would have
called early released versions of guest paging and page sharing).
