I have a more immediate deadline from my $EMPLOYER. I plan on posting
the series that I am using for my requirements. In my situation I need
to boot EFI and the machine I'm booting requires multiple initrds that
the dom0 kernel glues together. Hence my need for this series. It
includes all the changes we've discussed in this thread. Hopefully it
will help you out to post v12.
