Even if we were to take xend patches in unstable I wouldn't expect them
to be backported to 4.1 at this point.

In order for us to start habitually taking patches which implement new
features in xend again someone needs to step up and take responsibility
for it. i.e. reviewing the patches and fixing the regressions they
introduce. Probably they should add themselves to MAINTAINERS.

I've no objections to someone who wants to become the xend maintainer
stepping up and doing the job but just slapping patches in isn't the

Personally I think that having made the decision to deprecate xend we
should just let it die and not prolong the pain.
