Thread-topic: New domain builder in xen-unstable
User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/

This is a heads up, mainly to the PowerPC and IA64 folks, that Gerd's new
domain builder (including new Elf parser) is now checked into xen-unstable.
This has disabled the old builder and elf-parsing code which will shortly be
removed entirely.

So far the new libelf has only been run-tested on x86, so...

For IA64: most of the code is in place, but the new code needs some
run-testing and possibly some small fixups to get it working.

For PPC: looks like you have your own domain builder, which you may or may
not decide to merge with the main code (it would be nice to!). Either way,
you *do* use the common elf parser, and so your domain builder code needs to
be changed to talk to Gerd's libelf.
