But the patch
wont do on xen 3.0.

reports that the patch is < xen 2.0.7

Its really a pitty that xen dont work on this low-power and fanless
(silent!) cpu.

Anyone know if it's the same for M10000/13000 (bigbrother of C3)?
AFAIK the missing CMOV instr. has been fixed on those cpu's. IMBW..
Further, the VIA KN400-series chipset should be a better design than previous ones. If only they had a KN400 pro based board, since the non-pro has issues with SATA-2 disks - not that SATA-2 matters on such slowish cpu's, but newer, larger disks will likely be SATA-2 mostly.
