Can you please provide a cover letter for your patch series and explain
what this whole exercise is about.

I'm seing some __init anotations in various files and then functional xen
changes which seem to be completely unrelated and independent.

Please split such stuff, e.g. the unrelated __init annotations so they can
be picked up and merged and the real functional stuff is then self
contained.

If the __init annotation touches the same code as the functional changes,
then keep them together, but please do not burden reviewers and maintainers
with guess work to decode what is what.

Thanks,

tglx
