For -unstable this also resulted in just a single left test failure
(test-amd64-i386-pair   17 guest-migrate/src_host/dst_host),
which appears to be the result of the migration, after the
first few thousand pages, seeing a rapid decrease of speed
(which then likely causes that timeout). I couldn't spot anything
in the logs that would explain this though. But I did notice that
in two of the three runs there was not xend.log captured on
the source host in the first place - is there an explanation for

In any event I'm going to take these almost-pushes as a
"good enough" sign to pull over the two or three commits into
the stable branches, in the expectation that we should be
able to get a push there over the weekend, and then release
early next week.

Looking through the logs of *-mite it also seems like you gave
3.11 a try, hitting a BUG() in balloon.c.
