For stuff which is big an complex or adds new protocol features I think
discussing it on xen-devel and agreeing on the interface etc before
taking it to netdev makes sense, simply because 99% of the folks there
don't care one jot and don't want to read some enormous thread where we
nitpick the name of the xenbus feature node ;-).

Obviously trivial stuff can go straight to netdev.

This one is somewhere in the middle and is a bit of a judgement call,
but I think erring on the side of xen-devel only first is fine.
