Will upgrading vbd's from Xen 1.1 -> 1.2 be seamless ?

Good idea... already I don't like it.  My main complaint is that
whenever trying to run a simply command it takes forever and uses all

No serial console so no logs. I did try xeno-unstable and it panics on
boot on process swapper.  I'll see if I can find a serial cable around
