CentOS 5.3 + linux-2.6.27 kernel

Anyway, I wasn’t happy with the XEN 3.3 with the xen kernel 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5xen (got these by yum)
Let’s update the newer kernel and Xen.

So, download the xen kernel 2.6.27, then apply patches, and compile. Let’s see if it works with Xen 3.4…

$ git clone http://xenbits.xen.org/git-http/xenclient/linux-2.6.27.git
$ cd linux-2.6.27
$ git clone http://xenbits.xen.org/git-http/xenclient/linux-2.6.27-pq.git .git/patches
$ guilt-push -a

(These commands above are taken from Xen-devel ML.)
I have been looking for the best Linux distro + Xen, but I hope CentOS 5.3 will be the one.

Patch 1: It’s fun to see this kind of comment “HACK ALERT!!” But just comment out this hack…
