Bug#606589: xen-linux-system-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 doesn't upgrade from xen-linux-system-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64
severity 606589 important
reassign 606589 xen-hypervisor-4.0-amd64
merge 606590 606589
At the core this is the same issue as 606590. I think a single report is
enough to allow this to be fixed in the relevant place, if the kernel
ends up being the place to fix then the bug can be reassigned as
WRT the grub issue: Conflating two bug reports in one submission is not
generally useful and in this case the behaviour of grub is down to the
grub maintainers, the kernel has no control over the grub menu ordering.
