I had tried unstable for Xen and tools, but was using the
linux-2.6-xen tree for the kernel builds.

I just pulled the latest changes from the unstable tree (8793) and
tried again, this time building the kernels from unstable as well.
That worked nicely :)

For kicks, I pulled and rebuilt kernels from the linux-2.6-xen tree
(19848).  Those kernels seemed to work as well.

It appears that changes merged in the last few days have solved this
issue (thanks!).

Just curious, what is the branch philosophy on the linux-2.6-xen.hg
tree?  It appears to pull more recent changes than the testing tree,
but not pull all the latest changes in the unstable tree.
