Just to add to that status: all the normal kernel device drivers I've
tried seem to be working with this release --- usb, network and disk.  X
is still known NOT to work, but that's not top priority to deal with.

Next steps include:

      * Making sure domU runs correctly with the same kernel
      * Cleaning up the apic handling to be pvops-friendly, so the same
        kernel also boots on baremetal (all the code except for apic
        should be OK already)
      * Adding the necessary /dev and /proc support for xend
      * Tracking 2.6.25-pre

At some point we'll also want to start tracking the xen-64 bit work,
