I know it was not 'intended' for Xenserver.  However,  after a XenPVTools
install / uninstall it works.
It even works better than the Xen PV Tools (for Xenserver 5.0).  The GPLPV
drivers work much beter (and have much better control over) TCP
offload/checksumming, etc.

I was giving James Harper feedback ..  i hope he can make it Xenserver 5.0
(btw. Xenserver is not only for the rich ;)  You can dowload a free light
version which does not support remote-storage).
