Yes, normally we would not list a non-dev driver set here until they were 
signed. Not sure why that happened; they'd still be visible on xenbits.xen.org 
anyway but listing them along with signed sets is misleading. I'll try to get 
them removed until they have been signed.

The drivers normally stay test-signed until they have been properly tested and 
tagged. I will hopefully sign this set shortly.
