One of the problems with rawhide & xen is that upstream only ever has
patches against the latest stable release (ie, 2.6.12), and with
rawhide on 2.6.13-rc6 right now, that's a pretty big delta.
I think Rik's current plan is to get the latest upstream drop working
against the FC4 kernel before forward porting, as there are some
issues with the latest Xen changes and exec-shield.
Makes sense, when I tried to go back to fc4/xen kernels the box wont
boot which I guess is because Xen package got updated, I probably
should have excluded it before rawhiding
