Hello everyone,

I'm taking a quick look at the xen internals, and it looks as though xen
creates a layer that runs directly on the hardware, and this layer is
basically a stripped down and modified  linux i386.

This would mean any fixes for linux and new hardware support need to be
explicitly ported to xen.  Are there plans to instead have a xen
enabling patch for the linux kernel?  This should make it much easier to
maintain xen over time.
