Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 03/11] mini-os/xenbus: Add missing locks to xb_write

Thanks for your reviews.  FYI this series has already been applied to
the NetBSD rump kernels' fork of mini-os. I still intend to merge
these together at some point, but as I say that won't be very soon.

Right.  My approach has been that as I'm looking at this code in
detail and restructuring it, I ought to sort out the locking.  It is
much easier to add locking as one goes along when working on a piece
of code, than to come along later and try to retrofit it.
