I have created (by hand; the normal build process does not work on ia64) a ramdisk for use with xm-test on ia64. What's the best way to get this included on http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/ so that others might be able to use it? It will require the arbitrary ramdisk size patch I previously posted, as it's 8MB, but other than that, I've been able to run xm-test successfully with it.

Asside from this patch, Where and how does the build system fail for
ia64?  It wasn't too hard to bolt in powerpc support.  I thought I but
all the arch hooks in place to allow it to work most places.
uClibc is pretty badly broken for ia64; there's no ldso support, though a co-worker, Al Stone, has been trying to patch that in. buildroot requires uClibc (in fact, I read someone describe buildroot as a testbed for uClibc), so that's a pretty fundamental failure.
