I am incorporating the xen changes to 2.6.10 to our PlanetLab linux kernel,
which is based on Fedora Core 2 2.6.10-1.14_FC2.  This primarily means that
various files in the kernel already incorporate various stable things from
2.6.11.  For this reason, I had to manually patch various files in
arch/xen/i386 and include/asm-xen/asm-i386 directories.

Do you have some sort of best practice or tools to resolve such differences
more easily, as I am not keen on going through this type of manual upgrade
everything something unrelated to Xen changes in the i386 subdirectories?
