    No, we are working closely together on Rusty's paravirt ops proposal.
    Given the number of questions I've fielded in the last 24 hrs, I really
    don't think people understand this.

    We are actively developing paravirt ops, we have a patch series that
    begins to implement it (although it's still in it's nascent stage). If
    anybody is interested in our work it is done in public. The working
    tree is here: http://ozlabs.org/~rusty/paravirt/ (mercurial patchqueue,
    just be forewarned that it's still quite early to be playing with it,
    doesn't do much yet). We are using the virtualization mailing list for
    discussions https://lists.osdl.org/mailman/listinfo/virtualization if
    you are interested.

    Zach (please correct me if I'm wrong here), is working on plugging the
    VMI into the paravirt_ops interface. So his discussion of binary
    interface issues is as a consumer of the paravirt_ops interface.

    So, in case it's not clear, we are all working together to get
    paravirt_ops upstream. My personal intention is to do everything I can
    to help get things in shape to queue for 2.6.19 inclusion, and having
    confusion over our direction does not help with that agressive timeline.

    thanks,
    -chris
