I'm worried about stability, changes in behaviour, changes in kernel /
parameters, problems with compiling some orig xen kernel, problems running
2.6.18 kernel like above,  dependencies like pvops version .32 for > 4.0.1,
.31 for < 4.0.1, bugs in 4.0.0, less bugs in 4.0.1, missing features like
pvusb, windows in vhd didn't like the GPLPV drivers (blue screen), signed
Citrix PV drivers only work with version 5.5, not 5.6, pvops kernel works on
my hardware with debian pvops xen 4.0.1 kernel, but xen pvops kernel
compiled according to wiki fc13 page has errors with agpart loading and so
on..... so i'm waiting for 4.0.3 ;-)

regards from a xen enthusiast using original xen on debian
