All,

I needed to build kernel-2.6.9-42.37.EL.c4test for this bug:

http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1634

So ... that new kernel is available for others to try as well from the
testing repository.

It has Xen kernels too.

It is not too much different than the 2.6.9-42.35 kernel released on Dec
26th by us to the testing repo (a lot of dm fixes that might help the
above bug, which is why I built it).  Here is a list of the changes from
2.6.9-42.35 to 2.6.9-42.37:
