Eric,

I could apply the first patch (however using 3-way merge) but cannot the
second. Can you please (rebase? and) resend? Or is this intended to be
applied on the top of another patchset:

Applying: snapshot: split snapshot conf code into own file
fatal: sha1 information is lacking or useless (src/conf/domain_conf.c).
Repository lacks necessary blobs to fall back on 3-way merge.
Cannot fall back to three-way merge.
Patch failed at 0001 snapshot: split snapshot conf code into own file
When you have resolved this problem run "git am --resolved".
If you would prefer to skip this patch, instead run "git am --skip".
To restore the original branch and stop patching run "git am --abort".

Michal
