This issue:

Xen dom u support for amd64 is being worked on. With the code  
currently in-tree, the system is stable enough to install from  
sysinst over the network to a xbd. There is still a lot of work to do  
but it is getting there. See Manuel's status report for more  
information. [Manuel Boyer]

Merge the ppcoea-renovation branch to HEAD. This branch was a major  
cleanup and rototill of many of the various OEA cpu based PPC ports  
that focused on sharing as much code as possible between the various  
ports to eliminate near-identical copies of files in every tree.  
Additionally there is a new PIC system that unifies the interface to  
interrupt code for all different OEA ppc arches. Please note pmppc  
was removed as an arch, and moved to a evbppc target. See the mail  
sent to tech-kern after the merge for more details. [Tim Rightnour]

merge yamt-x86pmap branch. [YAMAMOTO Takashi] - reduce differences  
between amd64 and i386. notably, share pmap.c between them. It makes  
several i386 pmap improvements available to amd64, including tlb  
shootdown reduction and bug fixes from Stephan Uphoff. - implement  
deferred pmap switching for amd64. - remove LARGEPAGES option. Always  
use large pages if available. also, make it work on amd64.
