Thanks to Wei for acking all of these. This set of series is now ready to
go in, but we've not had a push for a little while and this is potentially
disruptive so I'm going to hold off for now until we get a push.

There are one or two patches which will require rebasing over Jeurgens
introduction of tools/helpers, I'll resend just those ones though (or at
least only the Xen part of this series).

Ian, I'll coordinate with you IRL regarding the push to the qemu-xen-trad

It would be nice to either get this in for 4.7 or explicitly decide we
cannot, but I don't think it needs to block the rest of the series.
