That would be rather unfortunate. E.g. we're planning to stick to Xen
4.1 for our Qubes R2 release. There are some problems with Xen 4.2 such
as the GPLPV Windows drivers not working with it correctly.

I could imagine that it should not be very costly for xen.org to
backport each XSA patch to 4.1, should it?
