Thanks Boris for the testing the patch with the latest version of the patches :)

I see that the patch can be downloaded still from the mail-list archive.

Should the patch also be uploaded with instructions to the 
http://code.google.com/p/gentoo-xen-kernel/issues/list  (source of the patches) 
as well for others?

There are 36 issues so far on the google code site already. I realize this 
issue does not affect all users, but it does affect the user that compile these 
xenified kernels with the make-kpkg command.

Maybe this is something listmail and Andrew Lyon[1] could setup as a possible 
fix to the make-kpkg problem if possible...

I could be wrong here but I think this is a matter of xen itself did not always support bzImage kernel boot until sometime later in version 3.X and make-kpkg hasn't been updated to allow for it. Something along those lines I believe. I think the patch is better described as a hack though and its ok to upload where you want so as it is described as such. If anything an alternative method or actual fix may come of it.
