Aaaaah. I somehow thought the problems were with code proposed for
2.6.39, but you are referring to: "xen: events: do not unmask event channels
on resume" (6903591f314b8947d0e362bda7715e90eb9df75e) which was added way
back in November (post 2.6.37 time-frame) - and is already in Linus tree.

OK, now that I've that clear in my head (sorry about this confusion):

.. I can quite understand why you are unhappy about this.

Absolutely. We appreciate you being quite dilligient about other
sub-platforms and sorry for this screwup.
