I am doing a newer:

1. kernel from kernel.org (3.10.63), also the e1000e kernel module for that.

2. libvirt rolling in the last patch in this tree:

3. newer xen-4.2.5 with all released XSAs > 108 (including 116 .. but
not 115 as it is not released)

and that python-virtinstall

I have already modified the the source code and I am building, I'll post
when they are reading for testing.
