[GIT PULL] xen-netfront driver updates for 2.6.36

Hi Dave,

OK, let's try that again.

Here's a git branch with some updates to the Xen netfront driver, which add a new "smartpoll" mode to the netfront backend protocol, which is basically equivalent to interrupt mitigation. This merges cleanly with current linux-next (it previously just had a small constification conflict).

Do you want to take this via the net tree, or are you OK with me submitting them directly?


The following changes since commit 9fe6206f400646a2322096b56c59891d530e8d51:
