I wanted to try vmx in my new D920 system. I've installed the x86_64
version of ubuntu.

Looking at this mailing list I see that vmx has been made to work
again with patch 8870. Since testing is at an earlier patch, I bravely
grabbed unstable. All went OK except that debian's mkinitrd gave some
warnings, then failed to create an initrd file. I grabbed yaird and
that seemed to work. At any rate the system booted and dom0 came up

However there was no vmxloader created and indeed there is no
vmxloader.c in tools/firmware/vmxassist. The funny thing is that there
are files vmloader.c.? in the corresponding directory under .hg/data.
I couldn't figure out how to ask mercurial what it thinks is going on.

I notice that there is a vmxloader.c in the corresponding directory
under the testing repository.

Any advice would be welcome. Sorry to bother you busy folk.
