Oh no! I was hoping for an extra week!

The patch that I asked to be pulled: (a38647837a411f7df79623128421eef2118b5884)
"xen/mmu: Add workaround "x86-64, mm: Put early page table high"

does not compleltly workaround the regression that the patch from Yinghai titled
'x86-64, mm: Put early page table high" introduced wherein Linux can't boot under Xen.

The failure still encountered: https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/5/5/180, the
previous git pull request with an outline of the problem https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/5/3/99
and huge amount of details in http://marc.info/?i=1302607192-21355-2-git-send-email-stefano.stabellini@eu.citrix.com

I was hoping that the rc6 could stretch out so that by the time hpa came back from
his travels he would have had a chance to look at: https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/5/5/226
(or git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/konrad/xen.git stable/bug-fixes-for-rc6)
which has a more precise patch and fixes the regression.

Linus, what is the right way to go about this?
