As I understand the mail, it just seems that specific Dom0 kernel will
disappear in next Debien stable release.
For the time being, when you want to build a Debian Dom0, you have to
install a specific "Xen-enabled" kernel.
Starting Squeeze, all these functionnalities will be intergrated in the
default kernel.
