We've been running fedora 13 within EC2 now for a while and have started 
running into kernel OOPses with a certain combination of our tools, and it 
looks to be a result of needing a more recently patched kernel to fix a Xen bug 
or two.  Ok, no problem.

I've upgraded our kernel to the latest xen (have also tried from jeremy's sources.  This works great, however, all of my xvd* 
devices have shifted.

That is, what used to be /dev/xvda in the domU is now /dev/xvde in the domU.  
The vdb numbers are the same, but for some reason everything has shifted 64 
minor numbers (202,1 -> 202,65, for example).

I don't know if this is Xen, or something local to the machine, like udev, but 
I'm asking here if anyone knows a nice or easy way to solve this?
