Subject: Re: [09/38] xen: netfront: explicitly generate arp_notify event
 after migration.

Hi Greg,

Looks like I forgot to request this for 2.6.32 too, could you queue it
up there as well?

It depends on the previous patch in this series (arp_notify: allow
drivers to explicitly request a notification event.).

Thanks,
Ian.
