Its probably the most stable Xen dom0 kernel I've used so far, I have
it running on two production systems and I've had no problems.
The pv_ops tree is getting better all the time but I use pci passthru
and that works better with the "classic" Xen patched kernel.
Just be aware that opensuse are no longer developing the patches for
2.6.29, they have already switched to 2.6.31-rcX as they have selected
.31 for their next distro kernel, so if a critical bug is found and I
cannot fix it or port a existing fix to .29 then we will be out of
