This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
If we want any of these fixes we need patches for each fix which cleanly apply
to our Xen 3.0.3 stack. It is not possible to simply cherry pick the upstream
fixes. So I'm closing this WONTFIX. If any are required open a BZ for each
desired item and provide the associated patch
