These patches include mce, cpu online/offline, cpu hotadd, memory hotadd.
Testing method of these features are
1. mce: a normal way is to inject error through EINJ user interface, and getting mcelog at dom0 side
2. cpu online/offline: by echoing sysfs/.../xen_pcpu user interface, and getting result at sysfs/.../xen_pcpu
3. cpu hotadd: Intel has some new server, by pressing a button can add cpu. We can verify cpu hotadd by sysfs/.../xen_pcpu interface
4. memory hotadd: also by pressing a button to add memory, and can verify memory hotadd by 'xl info'

OK, cc
ACPI maintainer:
memory hotadd maintianer: I'm not sure who is maintainer, but I will cc and

I'll re-send the patches later, cc above people.

Basically no, for mce, xen implement mce logic at hypervisor,
at dom0 side, it only add mcelog interface to get log from hypervisor and transfer to kernel mcelog format.

Not yet, but will.
