A tiny data point about these domains. They are hosted by,
which uses xen systems running with the current dom0 patch set. Because
those patches are out-of-tree, they have a hard time updating kernel
versions, and generally lag releases by a lot, which is not
always a good thing.

So getting the dom0 patches into mainline will make their lives much
easier, and more secure.
