To be honest, despite considering patches 1-3 in acceptable shape
for being committed from a purely mechanical standpoint, I'm still
struggling with general reservations towards them: The whole series
continues to be very focused on special purpose behavior you want
for your product; recent comments from George emphasize that.

I can say for sure that patch 2 would be of immediate interest to us as well. The other patches in the series do also touch on areas that we care about (msr events, bringing back paged out memory). It might be worth considering splitting the series as to consider individual patches rather than the series as a whole.
