ah I see, 2.6.10-rc3-mm only iuncludes the changes we need outside
of arch/xen, drivers/xen and include/asm-xen.  You could try using
the arch/xen, drivers/xen and include/asm-xen directories from the
2.6.10 sparse tree, although there might be changes to arch/i386
or include/asm-i386 which need to be merged.

My private xen-2.0-testing tree had support for 2.6.10-rc3 for a while,
those changes were now pushed to xen-2.0-testing when we updated to 2.6.10.
You could use bk undo to roll back to a version which used 2.6.10-rc3.

We only support official Linux releases, but anybody is welcome to support
additional trees.  It's not that hard but it's not too exciting work,
requires knowledge of Xen to decide which changes will need special handling
when you apply arch/i386 changes to arch/xen and you have to be diligent
when keeping the tree uptodate so that you don't miss any changes to files
we copy/modify.
