I saw this question before, meant to come back to it, and forgot, sorry!

WRT their interactions with udev and such the linux-image-*xen packages
are just another kernel package so if their is some generic constraint
in the upgrade process due to udev then they are also subject to it.

However I don't think the manual installation of
linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-{686,amd64} step would be sufficient to pull in
the rest of the Xen upgrade. In particular I am reasonably (but not
totally) sure it won't pull in the xen-linux-system-2.6-{686,amd64}
meta-package or the hypervisor update.

Doing the "manually install xen-linux-system-2.6-xen-{686,amd64}"
installation step at the same stage that any manual kernel installation
step would be done seems like the right thing to do to me.
