Is there anyway (using bk magic or otherwise) to get a guaranteed
unchanging version of a Xen release?  Since all three trees
periodically get updated for bug fixes, its hard to create a
patch which applies cleanly to any Xen release because the bits
may change from one day to the next.

If not, perhaps its time to switch to a release model like
kernel.org where there are fixed-forever releases and patches
are provided to apply for latest bug fixes?
