[Xen-devel] [GIT PULL] (xen) stable/for-linus-3.12-rc0-tag

Hey Linus,

Please git pull the following tag:


which has a couple of features and a ton of bug-fixes. There is also some 
changes. Jeremy is enjoying the full-time work at the startup and as much as
he would love to help - he can't find the time. I have a bunch of other things
that I promised to work on - paravirt diet, get SWIOTLB working everywhere, etc,
but haven't been able to find the time.

As such both David Vrabel and Boris Ostrovsky have graciously volunteered to
help with the maintership role. They will keep the lid on regressions, 
etc. I will be in the background to help - but eventually there will be less
of me doing the Xen GIT pulls and more of them. Stefano is still doing the
ARM/ARM64 and will continue on doing so.

That is it. And back to our scheduled GIT PULL:

<blurb from signed tag>
 - Xen Trusted Platform Module (TPM) frontend driver - with the backend in 
 - Scalability improvements in event channel.
 - Two extra Xen co-maintainers (David, Boris) and one going away (Jeremy)
 - Make the 1:1 mapping work during early bootup on selective regions.
 - Add scratch page to balloon driver to deal with unexpected code still holding
   on stale pages.
 - Allow NMIs on PV guests (64-bit only)
 - Remove unnecessary TLB flush in M2P code.
 - Fixes duplicate callbacks in Xen granttable code.
 - Fixes in PRIVCMD_MMAPBATCH ioctls to allow retries
 - Fix for events being lost due to rescheduling on different VCPUs.
 - More documentation.
