Should we have asked Pat Campbell to include the text for the API
changelog in the patch submission ?

Something like:

   Attached patch adds multiple frame buffer size support [etc.]

   Please apply to tip of xen-unstable

   API Changelog entry:
        Framebuffer resize facility::

        Guest may send XENFB_TYPE_RESIZE if feature-resize = 1 in
        xenstore.  [add some text about supported sizes]

   Signed-off-by: [etc]

If we put the new API changelog entry right there in the message, just
before Signed-off-by, it will be easy to spot it and paste it across
if and when the patch is committed.

(I've edited the APIChangelog wiki page to put recent entries first.)
