[Xen-devel] [GIT PULL] (xen) stable/for-linus-3.7-rc0-tag for v3.7-rc0

Hey Linus,

Please git pull the following tag:


which has four bug-fixes and one tiny feature that I forgot to put initially in

The feature is for kdump kernels to speed up the /proc/vmcore reading. There is 
ram_is_pfn helper function that the different platforms can register for. We are

The bug-fixes cover some embarrassing struct pv_cpu_ops variables being set to 
on Xen (but not baremetal). We had a similar issue in the past with 
and this fills the three missing ones. The other bug-fix is to make the console 
(hvc) be capable of dealing with misbehaving backends and not fall flat on its 
Lastly, a quirk for older XenBus implementations that came with an ancient v3.4
hypervisor (so RHEL5 based) - reading of certain non-existent attributes just 
the guest during bootup - so we take precaution of not doing that on such older

That is it. Please pull!
