Would you have an idea when the changes might be pulled up to netbsd-9?
(This is not a "hey get it done", more a "thanks for a cool feature
which has my laptop
already very happily running 64bit Ubuntu and Windows 7 under netbsd-9
and looking forward to doing even more as time goes on" :)

Would there be any general advice in setting up a box to run a few Linux nvmm
guests (I have a non production XEN box I'm tempted to cut across)

For anyone else wanting to {re,}build pkgsrc-wip qemu-nvmm before the pullups
I'd recommend updating to 69cc68ce4bea01c3c1783029442e2ac676430e32,
then copying the qemu-nvmm directory then updating back to HEAD

Thanks again
