Re: [Xen-devel] libxl: ocaml: improve the bindings


I'd like to ask for the patches to the libxl OCaml bindings, which I submitted 
a while ago, to be considered for Xen 4.4.

I have rebased the series onto the current master branch, and there were no 
conflicts. The rebased version can be pulled using "git pull 
https://github.com/robhoes/xen.git hydrogen-upstream-v2-rebased".
