Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] domain0 no longer boots
re: make world, is there a way to install my own .config's for the xen0 and xenU kernels rather than having it just use the defaults?

When using the unstable tree, its always wise to recompile
everything with 'make world' having done a bk pull: Certain
checkins in the unstable line do make changes to the hypervisor
API (we obviously don't do this in the stable series). 

Keir checkedin a couple of important cleanups to the API
yesterday, which removed some changes in the sparse tree. As well
as rebuilding xen linux, it was necessary to redo the
'mkbuildtree'. "make world" will do this for you.
