Getting x86_64 building involved a couple of chicken sacrifices I think.
Stephen was making good progress yesterday, though, so x86_64 will
hopefully show up for test3.

Please file a bug including some actual details about your hardware
instead of just vague statements like this.

Although it would be great if someone would actually port this stuff to
not use ancient, barely maintained toolchains and/or the approach of
actually distributing the firmware in the repository (as done by Bochs,
which is the upstream for this stuff), I went ahead and got dev86 to
build on x86_64 so that vmxloader is in later xen packages.

The kernel-xen-hypervisor package includes both the Xen hypervisor and
the dom0 kernel as these two are tightly intertwined.
