Thinking about this since my last message, it occurs to me that it
isn't in general easy for make-flight to know when qemuu is going to
be used.  After all xl may decide on a whim to change which qemu it
uses for complicated reasons.  I'm not really sure where that thought
is leading.

There are big git performance advantages to having all of these things
be refs in the same git tree as the non-osstest-related branches for
whatever it is.

And I'm not sure it's right to say these aren't "for end user
consumption".  I don't see why someone couldn't use one of our tested
branches if they felt like it.  Of course some of them are better than
others and they aren't very well documented.

The arrangement with the zillions of qemu trees on xenbits is
anomalous (and should probably go away eventually).
