No problem.

Taking a step back, I think this series is very close to going in, if
not actually ready.  Do you have a git branch version of this ?

I find the series of un-numbered patches you have posted make it hard
to see the wood for the trees, and collect all the relevant pieces.  A
git branch version would make the life of the committer considerably

If you don't have a favourite public git server you can post me a link
to, you could use gitlab.com where we have a mirror of xen.git.

(If you need instructions mail me privately.)
