Sure Ian.
How much does this affects xen-3.1 release?

Do you mean "how does this affect the binaries released by XenSource"? Probably not at all.

If you mean, how do I apply this to 3.1, just copy the content of that patch into a file (say in a file called "fixbuild.patch" in your home directory), then go to your xen 3.1 tree and do "patch -p 1 < ~/fix-build.patch". It should apply without much fuss.


thanks Ian.
