So in my case, I'd need those patches and the patches at  (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. > As you can see, each folder contains the patches that should be applied > to each component.

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.
