The only difference from the last version of the patch is that the minor
version number in configure.ac is incremented.

>From the patch:

+# This test imports a ram disk device as a physical device into a domU.
+# The domU initialises the ram disk with data from /dev/urandom and
+# the md5 checksum of the data (using tee as it is written so as to
+# reading it back from the device which might potentially mask
+# The domU is stopped and the md5 checksum of the data on the device is
+# calculated by dom0.  The test succeeds if the checksums match,
+# that all the data written by domU was sucessfully committed to the

This patch also enables tee and fancy head in busybox on the ramdisk.  I
have tested the patch with both `make existing' where the tests run but
the new test fails because the ramdisk is missing tee and fancy head and
`make` where the test passes successfully.

The patch also installs the block-integrity tests in the default test
set so they get executed.
