Hi Chip,

Thanks for getting the changes in. I am starting the conversation with the XenServer team
to get changes up-streamed. However, right now I don't have an ETA of when it'll be done.
Considering that the process may take time, I thought it would be better to have the changes
in asf so that any work isn't blocked on it.

I'll keep the thread updated as and when I have something more to share.

Regards,
Devdeep
