I use the stable version (Debian 6, called squeeze).

2.6.32 pv_ops kernel with some XEN patches for pciback etc.

All the features the stock Debian kernel has (I don't know if Debian kernel 
offer special features ;-). I use the sources from Debian for my own kernel. So 
the 3.0 kernel has no pciback support, but I patched it with the vga patch. I 
used a long time the Standard Debian XEN kernel and my systems ran month 
without any errors I patched the Debian kernel sources with the SCST patches. 
If you don't need SCST support, you don't need my kernel. BTW, I also have 
2.6.32 kernel with SCST support.
