It should be mentioned that a similar series has been posted some years
ago by Marek Marczykowski-Górecki, but this series has not been applied
due to a Xen header not having been available in the Xen git repo at
that time. Additionally my series is fixing some more DoS cases.

With this, wouldn't it have made sense to Cc Marek, in case he wants to
check against his own version (which over time may have evolved and
hence not match the earlier submission anymore)?

I have compared this, and the blkfront series against my patches and
they seem to cover exactly the same set of issues. Besides one comment I
made separately, I think nothing is missing. Thanks!

BTW, shouldn't those those patches land in stable branches too? In some
threat models, I'd qualify them as security fixes.

Its on my todo list.

Most stable branches will need backports, so this might require some
more time to get it finished.
