I succeeding in applying for real this time but:
p2m.c: In function âget_page_from_gvaâ:
p2m.c:1185:45: error: âmaddrâ may be used uninitialized in this function 
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
make[4]: *** [p2m.o] Error 1

This was on arm32. So not pushed.

Please avoid word wrapping patches in the future.
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Submitting_Xen_Patches has some guidance for
different mail clients. I fixed it by hand this time.
