Just for the record - I do not see this as warranting a release exception.
The effort to get this in place was started way too late, and shouldn't
be rushed close to or already beyond the feature freeze point.

Subject: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 0/3] Xen VMware tools support

and a feature freeze of 10th September 2014, I would not expect to
need a release exception.
I hope you didn't mean this seriously: That might have been okay
for a feature that can be expected to not need a lot of discussion
and is relatively limited in the amount of code it touches. But
generally, and particularly for anything larger, please get used to
starting the work and discussion early, not near the end of a
development cycle.

Clearly I did not understand this correctly. Sorry about that. I did attempt
to start this discussion early (December 13, 2013), but failed (do to other
things) to post the v2 until Sept 1, 2014.
