Asked this on the -devel mailing list, without response, I did actually try patching the kernel with the patches directly but there are a few rejects in some rather internal parts of the kernel, so I thought I would ask before spending too much time chasing this rabbit.

Is it possible to patch Xen into 2.6.9 without problems?

There are a number of Centos Kernels that have other patches against
2.6.9.  For example:

If it's possible I would like be able to patch Xen into one of these
kernels or the stock 4.2 kernel series.

This would also be true for RHEL4/4.1/4.2

Is there anything particular about the 2.6.12/2.6.14 kernels that make
them a better choice for Xen?
