Especially agree with that. I lost about two weeks trying to find way to
get maxmem working with pv_ops kernel. No documentation, strange
behavior (inflating/deflating balloon below initial mem size working,
higher than inital mem - not).

Right now we are using Gentoo 2.6.34 kernel (even for debian) wich one
come from SUSE's xen patches.

If we adds that default Debian linux-image-2.6.26-xen-686 have bug with
ballooning wich can cause crash on heavy loaded machine, SUSE become
source of salvation. 

PS But I still do not like RPM-based distros (f.e. kickstart do not
accept all parameters via kernel args). And it is fat (Centos/rhel,
SUSE, etc).
