[Xen-devel] [PATCH OSSTEST v2 00/15] add distro domU testing flight

The following series adds a new flight type intended to test distro domU
support, i.e. running distro installers and kernels on top of current
Xen to ensure things work. I intend for the flight to be run on a weekly
basis, and I've scheduled it here to run at the weekend when in theory
things might be quieter.

I've initially just done Debian PV domU support since Debian is what I
know, but I hope others will add other distros as time goes on.

The series introduces support for running the Debian Installer in a PV
domU booting from netboot (PXE-ish) and netinst (ISO media) and adding
jobs to test all of those for Squeeze onwards up to Sid and the
daily/weekly builds.

The flight is a bit unusual since distro installer builds are not really
versioned in a way which is useful to osstest, so instead each flight
will be compared against the previous run only (this stuff needs testing
in production).

The new Debian install functionality here also gives us the opportunity
to test pygrub and pvgrub, so a couple of jobs are added to the regular
tests using installer images versioned via TftpDiVersion in the usual
way. This requires an early patch "mg-debian-installer-update: grab Xen
PV domU capable images too" to go in and a patch to update TftpDiVersion
to a refreshed version to be inserted before "Test pygrub and pvgrub on
the regular flights" is committed.

I've also pushed a branch, pull details at the end.

v1 of this[0] wasn't really a proper posting, but calling this v2 to
avoid any potential confusion.
