Hey Jesse,

I reposted it (fixed a bug, added a feature, and moved them to drivers/xen)
here:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/7/12/299

And I've coalesced the git history a bit to clump all the cleanpatch, incremental
features, etc in one big piece. Made it from 50 down to 18 patches. They are
in

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/konrad/xen.git devel/xen-pciback-0.6.2

What are your thoughts about it?
