[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/4] XSA-52..54 follow-up

The first patch really isn't as much of a follow-up than what triggered
the security issues to be noticed in the first place.

1: x86: preserve FPU selectors for 32-bit guest code
2: x86: fix XCR0 handling
3: x86/xsave: adjust state management
4: x86/fxsave: bring in line with recent xsave adjustments

The first two I would see as candidates for 4.3 (as well as
subsequent backporting, albeit I realize that especially the first
one is non-trivial), while the third is code improvement only,
and the fourth is really just cleanup, and hence I'd be fine with
deferring them until after 4.3.
