I'm not sure any of the core Xen developers wants to lay claim to
blktap2 in general and these patches in particular.... :-)

I try to keep these patches updated since blktap2 is useful in our
implementations and I wanted to save everyone else what seemed like
endless hours of googling and searching trying to get these facilities
working the way they are supposed to.  I'm glad you have found them

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.  I thought I had that issue
corrected but the 3.2 patches must have escaped those fixes.

In any event I made the needed changes so the patches on the above FTP
site should now drop in without any problems.

Thanks again for the heads up on this.

Good luck with your Xen efforts and have a nice weekend.
