Looking through the list of patches backported in XenServer,


Can I strongly recommend 704302ce9404c73cfb687d31adcf67094ab5bb53
"oxenstored: Protect oxenstored from malicious domains." for backport to
all trees.


Can I suggest possibly:

* fca11da0ec956b17d7450d7776c3ffa22a8f538a "x86: Special case
__HYPERVISOR_iret rather more when writing hypercall pages"
* 3e787021fb2420851c7bdc3911ea53c728ba5ac0 "x86/Intel: add support for
Haswell CPU models"

As a group - more detail in the console ring in the case of a crash:
* 66450c1d1ab3c4480bbba949113b95d1ab6a943a "xen/conring: Write to
console ring even if console lock is busted"
* cc90bf1894daf9f97791495e2256e7e342e25704 "xen/conring: Clean up
writing to the console ring"

As a group - improvements around console_force_unlock():
* 44db24103ff1c53a13afebf4d72ad853cee07786 "fix gdbstub build c/s
* 7b9fa702ca323164d6b49e8b639a57f880454a8c "watchdog/crash: Always
disable watchdog in console_force_unlock()"
* 896934596614b44c20a37263c9decb0b639ef995 "x86/watchdog: Tweak
implementation given new common code"
* c8177e691f0f611240853326712d43482ec949bf "watchdog: Move watchdog from
