We don't usually backport to stable for tech preview (Xenstored 
Live-Update is one).

In this case, I mainly added it because it makes easier for a developper 
to figure out where the bugs comes from and downstream may want to 
ingest it. This doesn't mean I request an official backport.

I could just mention in the commit message if you prefer.

Cheers,
