Re: [Xen-users] XCP with 64-bit dom0?

I'm trying to integrate live-cloning (via the xen snowflock codebase)
into the XCP control path, which requires me to run a 64-bit PV
kernel, and also requires 64-bit dom0 tools to talk properly with Xen.

Perhaps I should re-ask this question in Xen-devel.  It may be a more
appropriate venue.
