No, indeed it wasn't on purpose.  Sorry that it dropped through the cracks.

If you could send a pull request to
https://github.com/CentOS-virt7/xen with those two patches imported
into the patchqueue (and give me any feedback on the README which
explains how to do it), that would be awesome.  (Feel free to send a
pull request pointing to a non-github git tree via e-mail as well if
you wish.)

Otherwise I'll try to get to it next week.
