I'm sure you know it Ken, but to make it 100% clear: only the source code 
in the image/sources file is frozen for 4.0. So no, those fixes won't get 
into 4.0. But we are free to ship 4.0 with the latest vm. This has the 
advantage that when people update to 4.1, they won't have to download a 
new vm, just the image, because the vm packed with 4.0 will just work
