We've been talking a lot to the RH folks about what features they'd like
to see in the FC6 release and when their freeze dates are, and decided
to hold the tree open a couple of weeks longer.

There are a number of significant patches quite close to being ready for
inclusion. Several area already getting quite a bit of testing
out-of-tree, so integration shouldn't be too painful.

 * new qemu-dm device model patch
 * PV framebuffer support
 * blktap support for qcow and raw files (and possibly dm-userspace)
 * possibly new shadow pagetable code
 * possibly the NUMA page allocator patches
