My patch is just Steven Smith's patch anyway, with the fix to make it
apply to the current head and the addition of GPLPV as product number 2,
so go ahead and apply his patches please and then I'll submit the GPLPV

I've tested Steven's patches enough that I'm happy with them.

OT, I'm curious, why is Xen in hg but the qemu stuff in git?
