[Xen-users] customized debian kernel ...

Olivier I'm running ext4 on my Dom0 ... Yes the solution you propose can solve 
the issue but in this case the system running ext4 is the host machine ...

you use ext4 on Dom0 ? Otherwise you can keep the original Debian 2.6.26 kernel on this one (the Dom0) and use any vanilla newer kernel on DomU : it's what I do, all my Dom0 are in 2.6.26 and all DomU are in
