I had in mind two livepatches with a dependency on each other that would utilize
different callback mechanism. 

Say the first one just modifies xen_extra_function to print based on a string variable.
Applying it would change extra version to say 'FIRST_LIVEPATCH' or such.

The second one has an apply and revert callback that modifies the xen_extra_function to print say
'SECOND_LIVEPATCH' and also 'SECOND_REVERTED' when reverted?

So you would have:

xen-livepatch apply xen_first
xl version |grep extra_version
[should have FIRST_LIVEPATCH]
xen-livepatch apply xen_second
xl version |grep extra_version
[should have SECOND_LIVEPATCH]
xen-livepatch revert xen_second
xl version |grep extra_version
[should have SECOND_REVERTED]

or such?

Just want to make sure that the code that is doing the various combinations
of callbacks is behaving correctly. Naturally doing all of them would be rather
difficult, so I would rather test the most common use-case.

Hope this helps?
