    Subject[GIT PULL] paravirt_ops and xen updates for 2.6.24
    Hi Linus,

    Please pull:

    ssh://master.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git xen-upstream

    This contains updates for arch/x86 paravirt_ops and Xen.

    A quick overview of the patchset:

    paravirt_ops:
    Remove the monolithic paravirt_ops structure, and replace it with
    smaller structures of related functions. Also, clean up the handling
    of lazy mode to make it easier to implement.

    x86/mm/init.c: remove a chunk of dead code

    Xen:
    - remove duplicate includes
    - yield if the target vcpu of an IPI is not currently running
    - add post-batch callbacks for multicalls [*]
    - deal with unpinning pagetables when another vcpu still
    has a cr3 reference [*]
    - deal with split ptelocks by pinning each pte page
    separately under lock
    - determine the kernel/hypervisor address split dynamically
    - use the right arg structure for register_vcpu_info [*]
    - add extra debugging output for failed multicalls

    XFS:
    - eagerly unmap vmapped areas to avoid confict with Xen [*]

    [*] bugfix needed for 2.6.23. I've also cc:d them to stable@kernel.org
