The changes put in RHEL5 are *backports* of existing features in upstream
Xen, so we know the changes there are not going to conflict with what
upstream Xen does in the future. The libvirt changes we just enabling
existing Xen code in libvirt, to work with earlier versions of Xen.  If
there were RHEL-5 Xen features  which were not already upstream in a newer
Xen version, we wouldn't include them in libvirt (they wouldn't be in
RHEL-5 Xen anyway, because we don't add stuff there unless it is already
in upstream Xen).

Daniel
