All applied, thanks.

Regarding stable, it should be easy to backport the patches to
2.6.34-rc6, but for 2.6.33 and earlier, it's murky. And we certainly
don't have the means to test them.

So please prepare _tested_ patchsets (git is fine) for 2.6.3[432]. I
suggest you hold off for 2.6.3[32] until their next release, since there
are a lot of kvm patches in review for them. In general patches should
be prepared against kvm.git kvm-updates/2.6.foo; we'll keep them up to
date against stable.

Longer term, we need kvm-autotest support for nsvm, and unit tests in
qemu-kvm/kvm/user/test.
