Xenproject calls for tests on 4.6 rc2, but provides no complete tarball. There is an abbreviate tarball (missing sub-projects in tools, like qemu) in the mirage repo (about 5MB).

Incomplete tarball

So I used the make target `src-release-tarball` after
git checkout 4.6.0-rc2

As noted on xen-devel, there is a problem with stubdom build that I fixed with this patch
http://pastebin.com/5yGcG1cA (xen-mini-os-local.patch)

Now I had my own complete tarball to build with. My results (xen-upstream*.deb) are here

After install and setup. I ran my set of PV and HVM (Win7) domU. Vivid dom0 has a bug in

where the bootup will hang if there are Volume Groups (LVM), but no root on LVM. It hung for almost
21s. I solved this by modifying the 85-lvm2.rules which goes in the ramfs, removing the vgchange call.
I left the *rules used by kernel alone, as is.

All of my linux PV domU and Win7 HVM ran fine.

I chose Vivid to test rc2 since it has kernel 3.19.x and systemd-219, and has the benefit of the Debian 8 experience.
