We used a completely different SPEC file for the this kernel than the
standard CentOS kernels.  This is because we wanted to be able to build
the kernel using the vanilla kernels from kernel.org and do a much more
base kernel than one gets from those in RHEL.

There are positives and negatives to that decision, but we got the
original SPEC from the elrepo guys, and modified it from there to get
what we needed.

As Akemi suggested, the way to begin trying to do this would be to run
through the RHEL 7 kernel spec file and find anything pertaining to


Those things would need to be rolled into the xen kernel.

As you can see, none of that is in the xen-kernel spec file:
