    thanks Jeremy, applied.

    Since they depend on the generic-ipi infrastructure changes, i've
    created a separate, new tip/xen-64bit branch. The tip/x86/xen-64bit got
    merged into tip/x86/core and thus is headed for upstream. I have added
    your patches to the new topic branch - see the shortlog further below.

    that's OK, it should only affect 64-bit Xen, correct?

    Right now we need to get the generic impact of these patches tested,
    fixes to xen64 functionality can be done later on in an add-on manner.

    Testing: i've done a trial merge of tip/xen-64bit to tip/master - not
    pushed out yet. If it holds up in testing i'll put the integration rule
    into tip/master.

    tip/xen-64bit (which i've just pushed out) can be cleanly git-merged
    into tip/master, so if you send updates then please send it against such
    a merged tree - even if tip/master does not have tip/xen-64bit yet.
    These patches will need at least half a day of testing before i can push
    them out.
