The are some server-side indices which need to be updated on git push in
order for the http method to work correctly. This sort of thing often
happens when this hasn't happened correctly for one reason or another.

The git:// method is much more reliable since it does not require this
step (and it's more efficient on the wire etc). I'd strongly recommend
using git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git if
you can.
