Bug#477441: cannot be used as dom0

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-xen-686
Version: 2.6.24-6
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

The kernel image does not have CONFIG_XEN_PRIVILEGED_GUEST=y set and
/var/lib/linux-image-2.6.24-1-xen-686/xen-versions is empty. This is
a regression from previous versions and causes update-grub not to
add a stanza for the hypervisor. As a result, 2.6.24 cannot be used
on a xen host.

I am told this is an upstream problem. I am filing it with debbugs
for posterity.

Apparently 2.6.25, which is about to hit sid, will support x86_32
again, and *_64 has to wait for 2.6.24.

This also means that lenny will likely not support xen dom0 on
