As far as i understand it's Novell's patched tree.
Suse performed Xen forward porting to 2.6.27.
Canonical gave up on this task and picked up KVM, obviously
unable to compete with Xen Hypervisor on Server's platform.
If i am wrong about that , please advise.

Hmmm... I had thought that the linux-2.6.27-xen.hg tree was
essentially an hg equivalent of upstream kernel.org 2.6.27,
but it appears there are more differences (and not just bug

Can someone explain the difference and the purpose of
the linux-2.6.27-xen.hg tree (if other than to have a private
non-kernel.org copy for xen-related development that
hasn't yet made it upstream)? Why, for example, are
the hypercall source files in a different place?
