Hmm - that's less than entirely helpful :-). Thanks for sharing

I've finally got a build out of it, by downloading the Xen source dist,
and from the top level, doing:-

# make linux-2.6-xen-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig
# make linux-2.6-xen-build

which leaves me with a built kernel and modules in dist/install. Why the
patch route doesn't work I don't know though - this won't work with
make-kpkg without some extra effort, which is a pain....
