xen improvements for feisty

Registered by Chuck Short on 2006-10-14

We need to provide better tools for using XEN in feisty fawn, in particular to provide "just install it" support for ordinary Ubuntu virtual server domU's on an Ubuntu dom0.

review: OK -- smurf
2006-11-30: updated with mention to 2.6.20 and paravirt-ops waiting for approval.

2006-11-30: Approved. Lot of work here, but I think it's all covered.

2006-12-11: Blocked on upstream 2.6.19 merge proccess. Unfortunately xen paravirt is only for domU and not dom0. So we still need a kernel that does dom0

2006-02-01: 2.6.19 kernel uploaded, updated our xen binaries, initrd created on post install, grub is detecting xen kernels, and hypervisor. Will install xen-meta tonight.

2006-04-27: Need to pull in a new xenman. Unstable has 0.6-1 and it is much better than current 0.5. (BTW, what is the correct way to request new upstream code? Is there a feisty+1 for xen blueprint?)
