So guess you are the first ones hitting problems with porting to the newest
kernels, already wondered how you provide xen with the latest kernels
(im not around on the fedora-xen-lists).
Is this effort publicly available as svn-tree or has one to fetch the latest
sources-rpm for fedora? 
There are probably some people in need of the latest kernel because of 
drivers etc..
