This may be a dumb/FA question but how do you run Xen 3.4+ with the latest
Centos kernel?

Are there centos/redhat kernels rebuilt with newer Xen or do you have
to do this yourself?

I see source for kernel 2.6.18 with Xen 3.4 here:


but that kernel does not have all the fixes that have gone into the
RH/Centos 2.6.18 kernel.
