Glad to hear it.

Same cset on the repository is the main thing, but since the linux
build process can sometimes get confused about files which have or
haven't changed after a 'bk pull', most of us here tend to do a 
'make world' after an update; hence xen / xenlinux / tools will 
all be in sync. 

If you're editing some xenlinux stuff (source or config) then 
there's no major need to rebuild tools or xen itself; make linux24
(or even "make linux-xen0; make linux-xenU" if no config changes) 
should work just fine.
