   So in my case, I'd need those patches and the patches at [1] (or the
machine would panic at the ata stage during the boot), wouldn't I? I
don't know if I'll be able to deal with that today or this weekend, if
not monday I'll test and let you know.

   In fact this is the scenario I'm most interested in :) I'll first
take a took a the current situation with PV guests and build that
hotplug script and then I think I'd like to deal with the support for
HVM guests.

   Thank you,
